Holiday Necklace

Here is one of the fun crafts we made at our Halloween party this year.

This necklace could be used for a lot of holidays - hearts for Valentine's Day, clovers for St. Patrick's Day, eggs for Easter, Christmas shapes, etc.

I had one of our fabulous moms cut out 5 Halloween shapes (skull, bat, pumpkin, ghost, and witch's hat) using her silhouette machine. Each shape was about 3 inches across, except the bat was a little longer. I used a mini hole punch to make the holes because I didn't want them to swing as much as if I had used a regular hole punch. (You can find mini hole punches at places like Michael's.) Now that I think about it, you could probably cut the hole with the silhouette if you add it to the image.

Anyway, a fun and easy Halloween necklace is a great way to celebrate!

Here's What You Need
  • Halloween shapes (or other shapes if doing a different holiday)
  • Straws cut into 1 inch pieces
  • Necklace string or chords (I used braiding chords found at Walmart)
Here's What You Do
  1. Put 6 straw pieces on the string. (A great way to stop the pieces from sliding off is to tie one end to a pencil with a lose knot.)
  2. Put on one of the shapes then a straw piece.
  3. Repeat step 2 until you have used all the shapes.
  4. End with 6 straw pieces up the other side.
  5. Tie it off and enjoy!
