DIY Part III: Sweater Clip

26 Oct

I finally took a picture of the sweater clip that I made…from my camera phone.

To make your own, you need a couple of items:


  • A string of pearls
  • A vest clip or 2 alligator clips
  • 2 Owl Pendants or any other pendant you want (make sure it overs the top of the clips)
  • Crimp Beads (2)
  • Some Tacky Glue or Super Glue


  1. Glue the pendants to the face of the clips with tacky glue, the head of the owl should be at the largest opening of the clip
  2. With the string of pearls, add a crimp bead (thread it like the pearls)
  3. Then, thread the pearl string through the vest clip hole and back into the crimp bead to make a small loop
  4. Squish the crimp bead to secure it to the clip.
  5. Repeat with the other side of the string of pearls to the other vest clip.
  6. Cut off some loose ends and you’re done!

I can’t wait to debut this sweater clip!

    That is just devine! I am in love with sweater clips at the moment. Where do you get alligator clips from though?

      You can get alligator clips from a hardware store like OSH or an electronics store like Radioshack or Fry’s Electronics.
