As I’ve preached so many times before, my favorite craft is an easy one. I’m here to tell you that this craft should only take about 5 to 10 minutes from start to finish. Isn’t that great?! Guys, it’s a perfect Valentines Day gift for your significant other, or a great craft to do with your kids to surprise mom!!
As a kid, the only thing I loved about the doctors office were the wooden rollercoaster toys. Nothing took the fear of a shot away like pushing those beads along their wire frame. About a month ago, I found one at the thrift store. The beads were worn and faded, and perfect for a necklace.
The best part was that the toy was $3! Add in a $2 chain at Walmart, and your necklace is as cheap as it is fast to make. You could even use your own chain if you have a necklace that you’d like to repurpose.
So, if you’d like to make this easy necklace, gather your supplies and follow along!
- Wooden rollercoaster toy (Search thrift stores and Ebay)
- Chain of your choice from a craft store or Walmart, measured to your preference
- Big wire clippers or cable cutters
Use your wire clippers to cut the metal at the base, and slide the beads off onto your workspace…
Play around with the colors to figure out what combo you’d like to use and how many, and then slide them on to your chain!
That’s it. You’re done. You’ve now got a stylish, trendy, & cute necklace to wear with any outfit for under $20!!
