St. Patrick’s Day Craft: DIY Necklace



Everybody needs a bit of green bling for St. Patrick’s Day. With this simple DIY necklace everyone can be wearing green.

You will need scrapbooking paper, large paper clips and glue. Small paper clips can also be used, just adjust the paper size.

Hook paper clips together making a continuous chain that fits over the head.

Cut strips of paper about 1 1/2 inches wide. They need to fit the middle of the paper clips.

Cut the strips into smaller pieces that will wrap all the way around the paper clip.

Wrap small pieces around each paper clip, secure with glue.

Use another paper clip to secure the paper while the glue dries.

Once dry remove paper clips and you have one cool necklace!
