With summer around the corner, I thought a nautical-inspired accessory would make the perfect addition to my wardrobe. I've seen a ton of great DIY nautical necklaces and there are many different ways you can make one, but I found this technique to be the simplest. I also added my own twist by incorporating some gold chain. I thought this helped transform it into a nice statement piece I could wear with dressy outfits too. I bought the rope from Home Depot for $2 and had the rest of the supplies at home. Not too shabby for my new favorite necklace! Follow the tutorial below to make your own.
