JUNK NECKLACES

up-cycled junk necklaces for kids by mini mad things

This is such a fun, easy project for little ones and most of the items are up-cycled from the recycling bin! We made our own 'beads' using painted cardboard and bottle tops. You can also add in natural components like leaves and seed pods.

MATERIALS: Cord, corrugated cardboard, paints, bottle tops, wooden beads and natural components like leaves and seed pods.

DIRECTIONS: We begin with making a large batch of cardboard 'beads'. Get messy with some fun process art and paint your cardboard. Once it is dry cut it up into shapes and punch a hole in the middle. Also make holes in the bottle tops with a hot skewer and punch holes in the leaves (thick leave like gum leaves work best).
