Easy toddler necklace


  • tape
  • yarn
  • three or four colored straws


    1. Cut straws into inch-long pieces
    2. Cut yarn for necklace
    3. Tape one end of yarn, twisting tape to make an improvised “needle” for easier thredding
    4. Tie one piece of straw to the other end of the yarn (to keep pieces from falling off)
    5. Have toddler thread on pieces of straw

  • Tie ends together
  • Enjoy a beautiful necklace

  1. Hey Mary Anne – what a brilliant blog! I love this idea… now to work on the kids part! I’ll have to borrow some or wait a few years! Kxxx

  2. We did this recently with dyed pasta, but this is a much easier (and less messy) idea that I think my daughter would love.

  3. I remember making these when I was 4 and 5. Maybe even older. I used to cut the straw into really little pieces and loved to make necklaces from them. I think Becca still has one I made for her!
