Instructions

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

  2. How to make a charm necklace. Toy Car Necklace Diy - Step 2 2

    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.

  3. How to make a charm necklace. Toy Car Necklace Diy - Step 3 3

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




  4. How to make a charm necklace. Toy Car Necklace Diy - Step 4 4

    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.

  5. How to make a charm necklace. Toy Car Necklace Diy - Step 5 5

    Ta-da! You're done!
