• Assortment of colorful paper scraps
• Yarn or string
• Hole punch
• Tape for the ends of yarn/string


1. Gather together a grouping of color paper scraps.

2. Snip each color into varying sizes and shapes, keeping them all relativity similar in size. Cutting lots of paper in varying shades makes for a fuller and more dynamic necklace.

3. Using a hole punch, punch a hole into each paper strip and string onto a strand of yarn.

4. Continue stringing paper strips onto yarn strand.

5. When you are satisfied with your necklace, knot it together at the top and place it on!
