When I say the words “macaroni necklace”, you probably don’t think of anything you’d be willing to wear out on the town.  But this one is different!  Stephanie at Think Crafts came up with a design that is just as kid-friendly as the ol’ elbow-macaroni-on-a-piece-of-yarn variety of my youth, but results in a much more fashionable piece of jewelry.  This project is sure to be a hit at your next slumber party!  [how to make a macaroni bowtie necklace]
