Duck Tape® Beaded Necklace
Give everyday items a makeover with the Duck Tape® Beaded Necklace - no one will ever know its tape! This is a great Valentine's Day present too!
- Time:1 hour
1Cut 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.
2Cut the straw with your scissors into small pieces. These will be your beads.
3Cut 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.
4String 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.
5Connect 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.
