Paper Bead Necklace Craft

Pin It
This is a simple and colorful necklace you can make from leftover pieces of construction paper.


  • length of colored string, about 15" long
  • colored construction paper scraps
  • skewer
  • large darning needle
  • gold paint in shallow dishes


  1. Tear off different colored pieces of construction paper into 7 pieces, about 4" x 4".
  2. Crumple up each piece into a small, tight ball.
  3. Roll the balls gently in gold paint so the colored paper still shows through. Allow to dry.
  4. Use a skewer to make a hole through the center of each ball to make a bead. The teacher must do this part or at least help.
  5. Thread the string through the needle and tie a knot 4" from the end. Thread the beads onto the string. Then tie a knot after the last bead. Tie the ends of the string around your neck.
