DIY American Girl doll necklace for HalloweenI got the idea for this necklace from this post on A Pretty Cool Life. To make it doll-sized, here’s what I did:

– Elastic jewelry cording
– Floss
– Beads
– A piece of cardboard (to make the tassel)
– Scissors (not shown)
I followed the tutorial with a few changes to scale it down to doll size.

Here’s how:

  • Cut a piece of elastic cording about 12″
  • Make the tassel with floss (instead of yarn, which is too thick)
  • I used a piece of cardboard about 2-1/4″ inches long and wrapped the floss about 25 times to make the tassel.
  • String the beads and tie the tassel onto the elastic cording
  • Wrap the necklace around the doll’s neck to hang at the right length
  • Tie off the elastic in the back; cut off excess.
  • Before I cut the elastic I made sure the finished piece would stretch over the doll’s head

And that’s it. Super easy and super cute!

You could make this in any color combination you want. I used orange, purple and black for Halloween, but you could change this up to match any outfit or theme.
