a pretty new necklace {christmas craft along!}

                                                             
Hello, morning!

I've got my coffee in hand,
Christmas music playing,
a looong list of chores to finish {later},
and a sweet project to share with you!

I really love to give handmade gifts for Christmas.
{I wrote about it last year, too.}
This year, my list seems longer, and I'm not making as many gifts.
BUT I definitely did a bunch of my shopping on Etsy
to support other handmade shops. ;)

Here's a little project I did on Saturday,
a pretty pom pom necklace for one of my sisters-in-law...

cutting lots & lots of small circles...

making progress...

and it's done!

It was pretty easy & only took me about an hour to put together.
The only change I made is that I'm going to add a necklace clasp to the chain,
just to make it easier to put on/take off.

It's a beautiful necklace,
and I'm pretty sure my sister-in-law will love it!

Are you making any of your gifts this year?
Maybe someone on your list would love this necklace, too!

Thanks for your comment. I'm stopping by from LML too. I made a similar necklace using the same tutorial not long ago. So easy and cute! Yours turned out way better than mine though. I like the chain you picked and the fabric. So pretty.
