I’m almost embarrassed to share this with you guys, because it’s just so easy to make! It’s the perfect craft for a rainy day.
What you’ll need:
- 4 or 5 straws
- Needle & thick thread
- Chain or old necklace
Step 1 cut your straws
Cut 6 longer straws and 4 shorter ones. You can use them as is, or spray them in a pretty color. I chose gold. Or be creative and washi tape them!
Step 2 Cut your thread
Cut 4 pieces of thread. 3 ‘shorter’ ones (black thread in the pictures) and 1 longer one (white thread in the pictures).
Step 3 Make your design
Now it comes down to putting the right straws on the right thread.
I used a thick needle to get the thread through the straws. The weight of the needle helps to pull the thread through the straws.
These are the instructions of how I made my design:
Now go all around your design with your white thread until you’re back where you started.
To make your necklace more secure, I went through all the straws with the ends of all the threads. Near the end tie a knot and cut off the excess.
Attach a chain or old necklace to the straws and you have yourself a beautiful necklace!
You look stunning!
