2 red bell peppers, seeded and chopped
3-4 tablespoons Italian dressing

DIY – Fringe Necklace

Here’s a DIY for a fringe necklace from the lovely Mrs. Ellen from Universe and you.

What you need:

  1. Elastic Cord
  2. Pen
  3. Piece of leather
  4. Cutting Mat
  5. Cutter
  6. Leather Glue
  7. Ruler ( this one is specially to use with a cutter )

Step 1 : Cut the elastic about 90 cm ( about 35,5 inch). Make the hangman’s noose knot on both sides. I choose this knot because you can adjust the size, making it longer or shorter.

Step 2 : Mark the leather. Start with one fringe, the biggest one 20cm x 0,5 cm (7,9 x 0,2 inch) and then mark 2 fringes with 1cm (4 inch) smaller. And keep marking two fringes each time 1cm (4 inch) smaller than the last one. Mark the total of 22 fringes + the big fringe for the necklace (you can make less fringes if you want). After that mark 2 fringes of 19 cm (7,5 inch) for the end of the necklace.

Step 3 : After you mark put the leather piece above the cutting mat and then cut fringe by fringe.
