I have a fun twist to your jewelry making. I originally shared this as an April Fool’s craft on the SNAP! blog, but its definitely cute enough to make with the little girls in your life. Or even for yourself! Why was it presented as an April Fool’s craft? Well, that because to make the necklaces I used a very special ingredient…
A Popsicle stick! That’s right. Today we’re making fabulous fun and glittery necklaces using none other than simple wooden sticks that are a dime a dozen. Ready to see how?
This process could not be simpler and is a great stash buster if you’re a paper crafter and hoard your paper crafting scraps (*cough, cough*).
1. Grab your favorite scrapbook paper (I’m using a silver glitter paper).
2. Trace the shape of the Popsicle stick on the back of the paper and cut it out.
3. Decoupage the paper onto the Popsicle stick.
4. Once dry, punch holes on each end of the stick (a Crop-a-dile will cut through it like butter!).
5. Attached a large jump ring to each hole.
6. Attach chain to the jump rings and a necklace clasp to the chain to complete the necklace.
It really does look pretty glamorous, doesn’t it?
And, of course, you make any variety of necklace you choose. I made another using a bright polka dot paper and embellishing it with a small paper doily, button, and twine. Isn’t it whimsical?
You can easily whip several of these Popsicle stick necklaces in no time flat! Create a fun custom piece for your favorite outfit and watch the look on your friends’ faces when you tell them what its made from.

This is adorable. I could see doing this at a little girl's birthday party - after they ate their popsicle, of course!
