Check out this tutorial for Straw Necklaces – a fun and cheap diy craft idea for children on a rainy day.

Supplies:

Different colored straws
Scissors
Yarn

Directions:

  1. Measure out and cut a piece of yarn for the size of necklace you want to make.
  2. In a small bowl, cut up the straws into various sized little tubes (these will be your beads).
  3. Tape one end of the yarn to the table so the pieces of straw don’t slip off.
  4. Pick which straw pieces you want to use for your necklace and start stringing them on the yarn in the pattern you or your child choose.
  5. Once your necklace is filled up with the straw beads, gather both sides of the yarn and tie into a knot.
