I’m sure that everyone has had their “IT’S SUMMER” time and kids are finally starting to use the sshhh “bored” word. So so this is something that you can make using stuff around your house, and keep the kiddos entertained for a while without spending a dime! Today’s project is a DIY kids necklace

Supplies:

  • Old magazines
  • Paper cutter or scissors
  • String or rope
  • Mod podge or other adhesive
  • pencil or straw

Cut the really colorful pages of magazine into 1 inch strips. Put mod podge on one end of the strip, on the side you want facing out.

Roll the strip of paper around a pencil, adhering the beginning edge to the other side. Once you get to the end, put more mod podge onto the end and hold in place to adhere.

Continue a bunch of times, with all different colors of strips, until you have enough for your necklace. Once dry, string the “beads” onto rope and tie with a double knot, long enough to slip over your childs head.

Both of my kids love their necklaces. And although they quickly ruined their first ones by running thru sprinklers (dang kids!) but we quickly made more and they were so happy to show them off to friends!

These are also a great idea for a kids craft camp. You can prep the “beads” ahead of time or have them make it at the beginning of the camp and assemble toward the end to give them drying time.

  5. This is so cute! And I love that it uses things you probably already have laying around the house anyway. So fun. Thanks so much for sharing at Inspire Me Wednesday. Featuring you in this week’s issue.

  6. Nice post…glad to hear my kids aren’t the only ones who wreck things right after they have made them.
