How to create a necklace using a simple elastic

Hello, and welcome. Today I'm sharing a simple tip to easily create a cute necklace using elastic.

How to create a necklace using a simple elastic

I got the very pretty medallion below from a friend who's into jewelry making. I doesn't show very well in the photos because the rounded glass reflects the light, but it's a cherry blossom and just perfect to cheer me up during the cold winter months.

The problem is that I got just the medallion and I obviously wanted to use it as a necklace. The solution: a simple piece of round elastic in a matching color.

Why is elastic so great to create simple necklaces? Because it's versatile, usually comes in a lot of colors and you can tie it into a knot and save yourself the trouble of adding clasps or other closures. And because it stretches, you can cut it as short as you need (as long as it fits over your head).

In this case, I really like how it turned out. And the best: it took me less than a minute to turn the medallion into a ready to use necklace.

(Almost) Wordless Wednesday - in purple and yellow

A mix of purple and yellow flowers sounds like an improbably combination, but I think it works. The dead leaves could go, but since it's basically the middle of winter, I guess I can't complain a lot.

Chocolate and cookies delish

Hello and welcome. Today I'm back here sharing a totally decadent dessert recipe. Making this kind of desserts is not my norm, as I find having them around just too dangerous for my waistline. In this case, though, I open an exception, because it is just amazing.

This chocolate and cookies dessert is a cross between chocolate mousse and a cookie cake, but with the consistency of neither. It is just spoonful after spoonful of wonderful, gooey chocolate sauce with the cookies in between. And of course you should not miss it.

Welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #106!

Hello, and welcome! I'm so glad you could join us for The Really Crafty Link Party #106. Come and share all your posts and as this is a party, please try to visit at least a couple of other links and share on social media - the more, the merrier.

The really crafty link party, keeping it real, craft blog

As usual, the linkup will be open until next Thursday and I will be posting the features on Friday, February 9th.

Did you miss last week's amazing features? Click the image below to check them out:

The Really Crafty Link Party is focused on crafts, so the idea is for you to link up all your crafty posts: DIYs, printables, home decor, tutorials, recipes, whatever you want to share. Feel free to add as many links as you want, and old posts are welcome too!

I have no problem if you want to add the same link in more than one week; it will still be eligible for a feature but please note that I will comment and add it to the Pinterest board only once.You can add posts on other subjects (family friendly please), but only craft related posts will have a chance to be featured and will be pinned to the party's Pinterest board.

If you host your own party, add it too - it may not be featured, but you'll be sharing it with all of us anyway, and everyone loves to discover new parties!

Instructions: Select all code above, copy it and paste it inside your blog post as HTML

There are no thumbnails in the party, so in the "name" field of the linky make sure you add an interesting title/description to your post. If you follow me via any social media (icons in the side bar) let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to follow you back!

By linking up you give me permission to use your photos in features or round-ups, and to share your posts on social media (always with a link back to you for proper credit).

Thank you again for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!
