Bespoke Bride's Mexican necklace tutorial shows readers how to make a quick and easy version of a cultural accessory piece. The necklace is made using balsa wood, spray paint and plastic gem materials that are applied with a glue gun. The piece is also infused with colorful yarn that acts as one of its most eye-catching elements.
Using Bespoke Bride's free and downloadable design, readers can cut their balsa wood into a pendant shape, accenting it with colorful gems that are arranged in alternating pattern. The recommended gem colors include yellow, green and pink while shapes vary from ovals to squares.
Once their gems are applied, readers can accent their DIY Mexican necklace with strings on each side and yarn-constructed tassels that add texture to its look. As DIY tutorials become more frequent among lifestyle bloggers, fashion fans are embracing handmade and crafty accessories rather than store-bought items that break the bank.
