How to Make Your Own Diana Necklace

8

Ever thought about wearing a piece of analogue Lifestyle around your neck? When I saw the Diana F+ keychains I thought of having a Diana necklace... and why not try and make one by yourself from a little piece of wood and acrylic paints! Learn the steps after the jump.

So here’s a tutorial on how to do your very own Diana camera necklace.

Difficulty: Low

What will you need:

  • small piece of wood (not too thick)
  • hot glue gun
  • paper clip
  • any acrylic paints you like (for classic Diana look blue, black and silver)
  • thin brush
  • chain

Step 1: If you have a small piece of wood, you take your hot glue gun and glue the paper clip on the back of the wooden rectagle. If your piece of wood is too thick you can make it a bit thinner and smoother by flattening with sand paper. You can also round the corners of the rectangle if you want. And very important: Make sure that there is enough space for putting a chain through. So position the clip in the middle and leave enough space free.

Step 2: After gluing the paper clip on the back, you can start with drafting your Diana. I drew a Sketch of the Diana directly on the piece of wood so that i knew where to take which colors and to see if there is enough space for everthing.

Step 3: Start painting your miniature Diana. Take a thin brush, this will make it more easier for drawing details.

Step 4: Let it dry, and wear it!

The Diana necklace is a cute accessory for your style and definitly a eye catcher! Good luck and have fun! LOMO ON! :)

    Reviving An Old Polaroid 1000 Camera

    Some time ago, my parents-in-law gave me an old Polaroid camera that they used during my wife's childhood. After some investigation, I found out that Polaroid had stopped making instant film. But the factory in Enschedé, the Netherlands had been taken over by The Impossible Project, so I bought a package of fresh film and gave it a try!
