After spending a few years surfing around blogland, I am thoroughly convinced that you can make jewelry out of just about anything.  Natalie  at Creme de la Craft recently made a project that demonstrates that theory; she used drinking straws as a material for making a stunning necklace and bracelet set!  I love the bright, bold, retro look of the neon colors (I am, after all, a child of the 80s) and the chunky, modern vibe of the geometric shapes.  And I love that I already have everything I need to make them in my craft room cupboards!  [how to make neon drinking straw jewelry]

Project estimate:

  • Drinking straws, on hand or $1
  • Spray paint (optional), on hand or $1 and up
  • Paper, on hand
  • Glue, on hand
  • String, on hand

Total:  Free and up
