Making jewelry can be a fun and frugal way to add style to your wardrobe. A diffuser necklace is so much more than an accessory. Diffuser necklaces help you to enjoy your favorite essential oil throughout the day without having to reapply. I love using essential oils to lift my mood, bring focus, or help me relax. I’ve seen many different diffuser necklace styles, but hadn’t found one I loved. I wanted something that would work well but also blend with my wardrobe and sense of style. This necklace is functional and fashionable, and so easy to create. Use the tutorial below to make our own.
- piece of leather large enough to cut out your shape
- sharp scissors
- needle nose pliers or jewelry tool
- jump ring
- necklace chain
- needle or leather punch
You can upcycle old pieces of jewelry to make new ones. Rather than buy a new jump ring, I just took one off an old necklace.
Cut out a basic feather outline from your piece of leather.
Create fringe around the edge of the shape by cutting in.
Cut fringe all the way around, except for the very top of your feather.
Use a needle or leather punch to make a small hole at the top of the feather.
Stretch out your jump ring gently by using your pliers.
Insert the jump ring in to the hole.
Close the ring using the pliers.
Slide the pendant on to your chain, then add 1-2 drops of your favorite essential oil. I love Stress Away, Joy, or Lavender. The oil should last a day or two before you’ll need to reapply.
