How to make a gloves pendant necklace?
Step 1: cut felt and lace flowers
Cut out two glove shapes from red felt and two decorative borders from white felt. The decorative borders are like clouds a little, you can feel free to make it. Trim off some flowers from the flower lace trim.
Step 2: make two gloves
Sew the decorative borders with the gloves and glue lace flowers on the gloves dispersedly.
Step 3: add beads
Slide a 10mm imitation pearl on a string of leather cord in the middle, then three spacer beads per side. Glue two gloves on the leather cord at each side, then slide two spacer beads and two 4mm imitation pearls on from each end. When wearing it, you can make a knot at the ends of leather cord.

The wrong side of this necklace is not very nice. If you just want to wear this gloves pendant necklace on Christmas for one day, it’s OK to follow this tutorial because the wrong side is not very important. While if you also intend to make it for daily wearing, I recommend you to make two-layer gloves then cross the leather cord through the space between two layers. And the closure can be replaced with a lobster claw clasp.
