Continuing with the copper trend is this lovely necklace! To make this, all you need is soft copper tubing (found in the plumbing section of a hardware store), cord - in this case I used a mint colored leather cord. Cut the desired length of tubing off with a small pipe cutter, curve into an arc and smooth down the edges. I went with an angled end on my piece. Then string it on to the cord and it's done!

I have recently become obsessed with incorporating copper into my decor and jewelry. I just love with warm tone of the metal and it's quite easy to work with. I've been collecting all kinds of inspiration here. This coffee table is one of my favorite DIYs to date. I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out and it's such a great addition to my space. I was so excited during the making of the table that I failed to get good photos of the process, but never fear! Check out this post to get all of the details on how to make this lovely, customizable piece of furniture.

These little wooden looms are basically the sturdier version of the cardboard loom I previously made (check out this post and this post to see how to use this loom).   To make these, we used some inexpensive 1/4" thick craft wood and some scrap wood that was just lying around.  Measure out and place marks on each end approximately 3/10" apart and cut the marks with a scroll saw, sand and your little loom is ready to use! Mine are approximately, 6"x7" and 3"x12", but you can make them any size you want. I like the smaller size as it is easy to work and travel with. Coming up in a future post I'll share the first two little weavings I made with these!

This pen kit was a great little gift I received and was quite fun to put together! I love gifts with a DIY element. If you'd like to make your own, find more info on it here.
