Upcycled Crafts: How to Make Plarn Jewelry
Hello there everyone. Today’s blog is the second in our series for Recycling month. We will be making jewelry from plarn, also known as plastic yarn. I chose to crochet a pendant for today’s blog using plarn cut from plastic grocery bags. Don’t know how to make plarn? Here’s a link to one of our first posts that goes over the nitty gritty of plarn making: https://recycledreadsaustin.wordpress.com/2012/11/09/recycled-crafts-how-to-make-plastic-yarn/
Take your plarn and start to crochet using chain stitch. Make 15 stitches. Join into a circle. Leave the tail.
Take another color of plarn and crochet about 22 stitches and join into a circle. Join the smaller circle by making a chain stitch with the tails of both the circles. Weave ends into the back of the outer circle.
If you’d like to add a bead in the center of the circle, place a bead on the jewelry post, then weave in the top of the post into the two joined circles until it pokes out the top. Taking the pliers, form the top of the post into a loop. Attach jump ring to closed loop and string onto a cord.
