|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!
