Do you remember?!  DIY Inspired: Eighties Charm Necklace | @mamamissblog #eightiesstyle #retro #eightiesfashion

This idea has been floating around in my head for a couple of years at least.  So, I finally decided to purge it out of the ol’ noggin & bring it to life – annnnd it turned out better than expected!!  I’m pleased as punch with this Eighties Charm Necklace & it COMPLETELY reminds me of my pre-teen years (oh the eighties!) & rocking my fab charm necklace.  Out of all the things I wished I saved from the eighties (well, besides my hyper-color shirt), was my charm necklace – that necklace was the bomb diggity!

If you weren’t around in the eighties, perhaps you were still a twinkle in your parents eyes – charm necklaces were like the beanie babies of the nineties and the rainbow loom of this century.  Well, at least they were in my little bubble of the world – hubs claims he had never heard of them where he grew up.

I wanted to recreate my Eighties Charm Necklace in a way that everyone could make it – with simple materials & simple steps!

I’m a craft hoarder (ha-ha go figure) & have a billion gazillion of these little erasers.  I have no idea why, lol, but I do!  I tend to buy stuff when I see it, if it inspires me in some way – aka craft hoarder – because a billion things inspire me in different ways each & every day ;)

Just a few supplies are needed for this project:

And it’s really very simple to make:

  • screw in a screw eye into the top of the eraser
  • attach a jump ring using your jewelry pliers
  • clip on a lanyard hook onto the jump ring
  • place charms in desired order on necklace, we used 14 erasers & spaced them two links apart.

  1. Oh my gosh, Melissa, what a blast from the past this is! Ha ha ha, I adore it! And, I am pretty sure my girls would go insane for this, so I might be making it very soon! I’d love to have you link this up with me for the Create & Share DIY and Recipe Party; this would make an awesome addition! I hope to see you there!
