DIY Bullet Horn Necklace

DIY Bullet Horn Necklace @TheMerrythought I know everyone is making, wearing or already over the bullet crystal necklaces. But I never got one and I just love them! When we got the little package of beads from KanduBeads, there were some crystals and horns in there and I knew they would be perfect to use for this project!
DIY Bullet Horn Necklace @TheMerrythoughtDIY Bullet Horn Necklace @TheMerrythought What you need:
-Bullet shell casing, make sure it’s a fired shell casing
-Tubing cutter
-Drill
-Wire
Horn/Tooth bead from KanduBeads
-Chain
-Needle nose pliers

How to make it:
-Use the tubing cutter to cut your bullet shell casing to the desired length.
-Drill a hole through the top center of the casing that will be wide enough for your wire to go through twice.
-Put the wire through the hole at the top of your bead and pull both ends up through the drilled hole in the bullet shell casing. You may want to add some super glue inside the casing for extra strength.
-Using the pliers, take the two ends that came through the top of the casing and make a loop and twist the wire around the base of the loop a few times to secure it. Trim off the excess wire.
-Slip it on to your chain or use a jump ring to put it on.

    I love this style and how simple it would be to make… but isn’t it a casing, not a bullet?ReplyCancel

    • Caitlin McGrathSunday, December 15, 2013 - 2:16 pm

      Yes, it is a casing. I had listed that in the supplies but I did refer to it as a bullet in the instructions and have changed that. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!ReplyCancel
