Step 1: Tools and Supplies

you'll need
a drill with a small drill bit
a belt sander or sandpaper
a jigsaw or hand saw
wood stain(optional)
clear gloss(optional )

Step 2: Prep

cut the board into a 1 to 2 inch slice

Step 3:

cut shapes out of the strip of deck, be creative (I have found that triangles are the easiest)

Step 4: Sanding

next you will need to sand the shape down to whatever size/shape you would like

Step 5: Drilling

now is the hardest part, to drill the hole you need to go slowly so the shape does not break or split

Step 6: Staining and Finishing (optional)

you can stain the wood to make the grains really pop out,trust me it looks much better. You can also spray clear gloss over the stain for a shiny look. then just put a string through it and wear your necklace!

    This is a cool idea. Especially if the board held sentimental value and was busted beyond repair. Thanks for sharing!
