A few people have been having trouble locating cellphone lariats for my Cell Phone Charm/Zipper Pull tutorial. So here’s a quick and easy way to make some.
First off, this is what we are hoping to emulate.
This is what you will need to make this silly thing.
That’s a split ring, 1 or 2 crimp beads, a pair of pliers and your string. I’m using fake leather cording, but you could use waxed thread, etc.
Cut your string to double the length you would like it to hang (I generally use about 5-6″)
Thread your thread through the center of the split ring.
Thread both ends of the string through a crimp bead and crimp it close to the split ring.
Now just close up the loop by tying the string ends together and applying either a little melted wax or glue to seal it. OR you could thread another crimp bead on and crimp it close to the ends. Just make sure the loop is good and closed.
Then, thread your charm onto the split ring and you have a cell phone charm.
Yes, it really is that easy.
Look for an even EASIER alternate method tutorial in a week or so.
