Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut sixteen 5 inch strips of Duck Tape. (We chose Graffiti for the color, but A.C. Moore has dozens of different colors you can choose from - choose the color that best matches your style!) Cover sixteen 5 inch stirring straws with these strips by rolling the tape onto the straw.
  • 2
    Cut the straw with your scissors into small pieces. These will be your beads.
  • 3
    Cut seven 20 inch long pieces of cord with your scissors. String all the cords through a single jump ring and tie them together. Secure the ends with a piece of Duck Tape.
  • 4
    String beads onto each piece of cord, leaving about an inch of cord showing on each strand. Do this until all the cords are covered with your beads.
  • 5
    Connect another jump ring to a clasp with your pliers. Take your necklace and secure the end cords to the jump ring attached to the clasp just like you did previously.
