Hello, everyone! I have a new project for you today. We’re going to be making two small jar necklace DIYs. These necklaces are so unique and so cool to wear; feel free to follow along and make your necklaces exactly how I make mine or play around and put whatever you want in them! Let’s get started.

Tools and materials:

  • Small glass jars
  • Glue 
  • Hot glue
  • Screw eye hook
  • Chain 
  • Jump ring
  • Ribbon (optional)
  • Cork or end caps
  • Dishwasher salt
  • Glitter

DIY glitter jar necklace

Filling the little glass jars with different items

1. Get a jar and fill it

These little jars that I have are super tiny and already come with a string, making them perfect for turning into a necklace.

Fill your jar with whatever substance you have; this can be beads, glitter, a message for a cool message in a bottle effect, a fun-looking liquid, or small beads of salt for a Supernatural-inspired necklace to channel your inner Winchester. Do whatever looks coolest to you.

Apply glue to the cork lid and cap the bottle to seal.

3. Add an eye hook

After the glue dries, screw an eye hook into the cork.

4. Style

If you want to dress up your bottle a bit more, you can tie a tiny bow. Don’t forget to burn the edges of the ribbon to prevent any fraying.

5. Attach a jump ring

Use a jump ring to attach the chain to the eye hook you screwed into the cork.

DIY Supernatural necklace

Let’s make another one. Remember that Supernatural-inspired one I mentioned earlier? Let me show you how to make it. 

Filling the jar with salt

1. Fill your jar with salt

For this one, we’re making a jar of salt. I decided to use dishwasher salt because I had it on hand, and also because it’s made up of big, chunky rocks which are similar to the appearance of rock salt they use in the show. I filled my jar up about 3/4ths of the way.

Gluing the cap to the jar with a hot glue gun

2. Glue the cap to the jar

The jar I’m using doesn’t have a lid so I found this cool-looking, metallic end cap as it fits the top of the jar perfectly. Fill the bottom of the cap with glue and place the jar inside. I found hot glue works best for this as it hardens very quickly. 

Letting the glue cool

Let the glue cool for a bit before sitting it upright to prevent sliding inside the jar.

Attaching a jump ring with pliers

3. Attach a jump ring

Use a jump ring to attach the chain and pliers to close the opening.
