  • How to make a charm necklace. Toy Car Necklace Diy - Step 1
    Step 1

    Grab your supplies! Necklace chains, thin, pliable wire, and small hoops can all be easily found at a craft or jewelry store. It's easy to find toy cars at toy stores, Target, Walgreens, even garage sales! For this project, I am using miniature cars, though it's up to you how big you'd like your pendant to be.

    Start by wrapping your wire around the front two or back two wheels of the car, depending on which way you want it to hang. Criss-cross them as you can see I have done here, and then wrap the excess tail around the wire.

    Keep up this criss-cross wrapping around the wheels until you've tightly secured the wire a few times around.

    Wrap the tail around the mid-section of your criss-cross. Open the hoop with your needle nose pliers and hook it through the mid-section. Use your pliers to put the hoop back in shape and string your necklace chain through the hoop.
