Approximate Time: 30 minutes

- 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.
