Word for Word Necklace Craft

Total Time 1 hour Ages school-age

What's your child's favorite band? What does she think is cool? Does she have a favorite expression? Now she can tell the world with this easy-to-update charm necklace.

What you'll need

  • Old magazines
  • Scissors and a glue stick
  • Colored plastic lids from coffee cans or other containers
  • Clear packing tape
  • Single-hole punch
  • Key rings
  • Ball chain and connector

Helpful Tip:

Glue another cutout to the back of the plastic and, no matter which way the pendant falls, you won't be at a loss for words.

How to make it

  1. Cut out a bunch of interesting words from old magazines and glue them onto the plastic lids, leaving enough space around each to create a colorful margin.
  2. Cut out the plastic-backed words, leaving room at one end to punch a hole later, and seal each of them with clear packing tape.
  3. Trim any excess tape from the edges.
  4. Punch a hole in the plastic and attach a key ring.
  5. String all of the words onto a necklace-length ball chain.
