With all the rain here in Seattle, I decided to make the best of it with a fun little necklace. Here is a quick and easy tutorial for a rain cloud necklace.
To start, you will make the cloud out of shrinky-dink. Sketch out a cloud design on white shrinky-dink. Mine was about 2" tall and 3" wide.
Now, cut it out and use a small hole punch to cut out two holes in the top corners and five holes along the bottom.
Bake the piece as directed on the package. I included a picture of my baked piece sitting inside the cut-out so you can see how much it shrinks.
Now, use jump-rings to attach 1" pieces of chain to each of the bottom five holes. These will be your falling raindrops.
Finally, attach two more pieces of chain to the top of the cloud using two more jump rings. You will then add a clasp to the ends of those two pieces of chain. Your chain length will be determined by your neck size and how low you want the necklace to hang.
That's it! The whole project is quick and easy. Have fun making your own little clouds!
