Fabric Necklace
Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages school-age

Who knew an old pair of pants could turn into such a cute necklace, or even a headband. Simply cut, add beads, tie it together, and voila--an instant accessory. This idea can be adapted for any holiday, using special colors or festive fabrics.

What you'll need

  • An old piece of stretchy clothing (like stretch pants) that can be cut into a strip approximately 24" by 2".
  • Large beads with holes wide enough for fabric to fit through.
  • Scissors
  • Needle nose pliers
Helpful Tip:

The more stretchy the fabric, the better for pulling the necklace over your head. This piece may also be used as a cute headband with a coordinating outfit. Many combinations of beads may be used and can even be changed out for different looks!

How to make it

  1. Cut fabric into a strip approximately 24" by 2". (See photo.)

  2. Lay out beads in an appealing manner. (See photo.)

  3. String beads onto fabric, using needle nose pliers to pull, if necessary.

  4. Space beads according to your taste.

  5. Tie ends together!
