Straws & Shoelaces!

Straw and Shoelace Statement Necklace!
DIY projects are always cool because they transform everyday objects into wearable works of art.  This straw and shoelace necklace project is not one to MIS, as it never ceases to make folks smile.  Below is my tutorial (DIY adapted from I Spy DIY).  Go pick up a pair of shoelaces and a bag of straws from the supermarket, or grab a handful of great colored straws at your local coffee shop.  Have fun creating these eye catching necklaces with friends!

Straws, Shoelaces & Scissors!

Cut straws to desired lengths
11 Pieces in Total
My longest is 1.75" and shortest is .75"

Straws Cut & Shoelaces Ready!

Thread both shoelaces into the longest straw...

Pull straw to center of laces

Continue to add on straws on each side
by threading the laces in opposite directions

Pull laces through, leaving a little more lace
at the 'bottom' of the necklace; for a flower effect.

Continue to string straws on...
