Perler necklace.

LilyxMoo 6/6/2016 03:23 am 2688

So I have a bunch of perlers that I want to turn into necklaces. I got some string but it was to thick to be able to tie a knot. What kind of string do u guys use when making necklaces? Or do u guys use chains? Any help is greatly appreciated c: Also any examples like pics would help me out too!

So I'll try stretch cord and elastic. Thanks everyone <3 I'm still going to try to see if I can add a silver chain also and see how perlers look like that. ^w^

I like using this stretch cord from Walmart for my necklaces and singles! I think its a lot more stretchy than the elastic cord and you don't have to worry about it popping

I may try the elastic cord since it's super stretchy. I was wondering if anyone actually uses chains for the necklaces? I wonder if it makes it look better o..o but thanks everyone for the suggestions.

something like this. The thicker it is the better for necklaces. But personally i use the elastic cord from dollar tree and double it if i feel its too thin.

I use fishing line a lot for my necklaces since I want them to be sturdy if they get caught on something. I do surgeons knots and use superglue to finish them off.
