Bullet Necklace Tutorial


I've been playing with the idea of a bullet necklace for a while. My brother in law had some really pretty bullets. (what a weird word contrast: pretty & bullets) I told him about my idea and he humored me pretty well and even offered to give me a few of his bullets for my project. I refused because I knew he intended to refill them to use again. Or something like that. Anyway, a couple weeks later my husband brought home a plastic bag full of this....

First I washed these

Then I used some beading wire to make little strands of beads. I used my needle nose pliers and my wire cutters to do this section.

I used my trusty glue gun to fill the bullet casing with hot glue.

Then I screwed this into the center of the hot glued bullet.

The finished product was strung onto a necklace.

I put the beads with the bullet to keep it from looking too masculine. 

 This is my trusty, girly tool kit. It was a great investment at $10.

Thanks, Emily! My husband is the one who picked out my hot glue gun. It gets hot super fast so, be careful. And the tool set was totally worth it! I recommend every girl have their own. Pretty sure my husband uses it way more than I do! Thanks for stopping by!

How clever, I would have never thought to use bullet shells as jewelry!
