- plastic drinking straws
- elastic cord (or string, yarn, etc.)
- Cut plastic straws into small sections about 1/4" to 3/4" long.
- Decide on how long you want your necklace or bracelet to be and cut a length of cord (or string or yarn or whatever you are using.)
- Tie a knot at one end of the cord making sure it's large enough to prevent beads from sliding off.
- Add beads as desired.
- Tie a knot at the other end and wear your necklace or bracelet or give it as a gift.
