DIY: Frozen Inspired Beaded Necklace Favors
October 7, 2014
These necklaces are being given out in the goody bags for Munchkin #1’s birthday party on Saturday. These are something anybody can make, and would even be a fun party activity for the kids.
Plastic Snowflake connector beads: 29mm x 25mm (purchased on eBay) – 1 needed per necklace
6mm plastic rondelle (round) beads (purchased on eBay)
Fuschia – 40 per necklace
Aqua – 20 per necklace
Lt. Aqua – 20 per necklace
8mm split rings
Clear stretch cording (.5mm or 1mm) – cut to approximately 24-26″ per necklace to make knotting easier. The thickness of cording depends on hole size of your beads. I used both 1mm and .5mm for my necklaces.
Cut the cording to approximately 24″ length. String beads as follows: Fuschia, Aqua, Fuschia, Lt. Aqua, Fuschia, Aqua, Fuschia, Lt. Aqua, etc.
Once all beads are strung, tie the ends together in a knot (double, triple, quadruple knot as needed). Trim off excess cord.

The snowflake beads I bought have holes on two sides, but I want to use these as pendants, so I attached a split ring onto one hole. NOTE: Jump rings can also be used and will be much easier to attach, but I wanted something sturdier. The snowflakes I used are quite thick so attaching the split rings took some effort (and a few ruined split rings). Attach snowflake to necklace by sliding the split ring between beads onto the cording.
These necklaces have approximately a 10″ drop plus the pendant (which measures just over 1″).
