These necklaces are being included in the favor bags for the birthday of a dear friend’s daughter, who will be turning 6 next month. Her theme is Despicable me, specifically the Minions, and I posted the Minion Coloring Books I made for the party last week. I will be posting more Minion party related crafts in the next couple of weeks, I’m sure. I’m also planning a Hunger Games party, and will have posts related to that party soon, as well.
Blue and Yellow Pony Beads 6mm (35 of each color per necklace)
1mm elastic cord (19-20 inches per necklace)
Optional: some sort of pendant (I used wooden Minion buttons purchased on eBay which I drilled tiny holes at the top of for use as pendants).
The overall length of the necklace is approximately 1 inches not including the pendant.
I alternated the bead colors and triple knotted the cord and made sure it was tight. Trim the excess cord and attach pendant if desired. I used 8mm split rings to attach the buttons to the necklace.
