Let’s Create a Kids Patriotic Paper Straw Necklace

Before giving the craft to the kids, prepare the twine they will make the necklace with. I suggest doing this earlier so that the mod podge or nail polish can dry.

Putting Mod Podge on the end of the twine so it doesn't fray when the kids make the necklace

Make the twine long enough so the kids can take the necklace on and off over their head. Use mod podge or nail polish on the end of the twine to keep it from fraying. I found this blue and white twine at Target in the markdown section (awhile ago) and it was perfect for this. I used mod podge with a make up wedge on the ends of the twine (make sure you do both ends) and do about an inch of the twine. Another tip is, do this on wax or parchment paper so you don’t get either on your table.

Cutting the paper straws about 2 inches  long for the patriotic necklace for the 4th of July

The straws are about 2 niches long. I’ve had these patriotic straws for awhile now, but I believe they are from the Dollar Tree.

Cricut Joy cutting out the stars for the patriotic paper straw necklaces

For added patriotic decorations, I cut paper stars in red, white, and blue to add between the straws. It gives the patriotic necklace a cool lei look. I cut the stars out of card stock using my Cricut Joy. You can easily print stars to use or trace and cut stars. The stars are about 2×2. As I was preparing the supplies for this, I realized I forgot to hole punch the stars so the kids can add them to the necklaces. So don’t forget to do that.

Stringing the paper straws onto the twine to make a necklace

Just string the paper straws and stars to make a DIY patriotic necklace for the 4th of July.
