Laura from Dacian Moon Handmade will show you this tutorial step-by-step.

Materials Needed

– colored paper (I used a white/pink transparent paper)
– paper clips
– glue
– scissors
– ruler


Step 1

Connect the paper clips together into a necklace.

Try it and see if it is the length you need it to be. Mine will have 14 paper clips.



Step 2.

Cut a piece of paper with a 2 cm width. You will see that is almost as big as the paper clip.

Make 13 rectangles of it, with 4 cm length. The 14th paper clip will be used to close the necklace, so it will stay as it is.


Step 3

Apply a layer of glue on one little rectangle…

… place it on one paper clip and wrap it around it.

It will look like this.


Step 4

Repeat step 3 for all the other little rectangles and the necklace is ready.

And, there you have it…. a Paper Clip Necklace.   Doesn’t it turn out quite pretty?  How did your Paper Clip Necklace turn out?  Let me know in the comments below.  Make sure to take a picture of it too…. you  can post the picture with your comment for all to see.
