  • Step 1

    Cut sixteen 5 in. strips of Duck Tape®.

  • Step 2

    Cover sixteen 5 in. stirring straws with your strips of Duck Tape® from step 1 by rolling the tape onto the straw.

  • Step 3

    Cut the straw with your scissors into small pieces. These will be your beads.

  • Step 4

     Cut seven 20 in. long pieces of cord with your scissors.

  • Step 5

    String all the cords through a single jump ring and tie them together.

  • Step 6

    Secure the ends with a piece of Duck Tape®.

  • Step 7

    String beads onto each piece of cord, leaving about an inch of cord showing on each strand.  Do this until all the cords are covered with your beads.

  • Step 8

    Connect another jump ring to a clasp with your pliers.

  • Step 9

    Take your necklace from step 7 and secure the end cords to the jump ring attached to the clasp just like you did in steps 5-6.
