Try this fun necklace your child will love to make and wear, made from things you already have on hand.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
- aluminum foil
- paper punch
- wax paper
- white glue
- paint brushes
- Cut a simple shape from cardboard and cover it with aluminum foil. Tape the ends of the foil to the back of your shape.
- Use a paper punch to make a hole at the top of your shape.
- Choose paint colors for your design and make a few little pools of paint, one for each color, on a piece of wax paper. Add a little white glue to each pool of paint, and use a toothpick to mix the glue with the paint.
- Use paint brushes to paint a design on your foil shape. Allow the paint to dry.
- Thread a length of yarn through the hole at the top of your sparkle shape and knot the ends of the yarn together to make a necklace.

String beads and straws cut up to make a cute necklace or bracelet and head bands.
Approximate Time: 15 minutes
- straws different colors
- larger beads with big holes
- thin elastic-white or black
- Cut the straws up in different lengths or the same depending on the look you want.
- Cut elastic the size you want plus add 2 inches to allow for the tying off.
- Tie one end of elastic to an object so the straws and beads do not fall off the end.
- String in a pattern using beads in between if the straws are various sizes. Otherwise, they slip inside each other if you do not use the beads. If straws are the same size you probably do not need the beads. It looks prettier with the beads though.
- Tie the ends together using a loose knot at first.
- Try on for size. If it's the exact size you want, then tie the knot tight. Otherwise, untie and adjust the size.
Very easy for children to do.

Acrylic beads and gems, elastic cording, and a safety clasp provide the basics for making all sorts of pretty, fun, gem necklaces for kids. Older children can make their own with limited supervision, if hot glue is used.
