Valentine’s Day Necklaces – Super Cute Valentine’s Day Craft for Kids
Okay, so to pull together these super simple Valentine’s Necklaces, here’s what you’re going to need to pull together (not much, I promise!)
- Red, pink and purple Valentine’s Day paper straws
- Heart shaped Valentine’s Day erasers
- necklace holder or cording for stringing
- eye screws
We’ve linked to the supplies on Amazon and if you have Amazon Prime you can get them in 2 days! However, the erasers we used in the pics are no longer available, so we find some others we thought might work. Good news – you can also almost always find the erasers and straws at the Dollar Store or in the Dollar Spot or party section at Target. I spied some super cute ones the other dat at Target.
The other items can be picked up at just about any craft store like Michael’s and Hobby Lobby and you might even find them in the craft department of Wal-Mart.
Okay, so let’s get our craft on and make some Valentine’s Day Necklaces.
You will need to cut the straws into 1″- 1.5″ pieces. This is a great job for the kids.
While they are busy with the straws, you can gently twist the eye screws into the tops of the erasers.
Add the eraser to the necklace first, then the straw pieces until the necklace is full!
If you chose to use plain cording, cut individual pieces approximately 24″ in length.
Finally, tie a knot to secure the eraser charm and straw beads.
Voila! Easy peasy Valentine’s Day craft.
These Valentine’s Day Necklaces are absolutely perfect as an activity for a Valentine’s day class party or try them if you’ve got littles at home as a fine motor building craft! Also, you can do variations of them for just about any holiday or special occasion.
