Summer Crafts for Kids - Jewelry Crafts - Paper Clip Necklace


Way back in elementary school, I was fortunate to have a teacher who loved to teach us new ideas and crafts using simple materials. Our group once made necklaces like these. It is one of the first crafts I ever remember making and it really fascinated me back then. That was the beginning of a love for making things.

The bear is looking gorgeous wearing her new fancy necklace. This project is inexpensive, easy for kids to create and takes about 30 minutes to complete. It is great project for a group to do together and then each child can show show off his or her new treasure. When finished, the necklace makes an interesting sound as if it were made out of another material. Try it out and see!

- approximately 20 gold paper clips (depending on size of head you may need a couple more or a couple less)
- 1-2 sheets of pretty scrapbook paper or other choice of paper (use fab colors for a  trendy look and more soft colors for a
   vintage look)
- craft glue
- ruler
- scissors
