Pencil crayon necklaces

Yesterday evening I ‘borrowed’ eight of my sons crayons and surreptitiously removed 1.2mm from the end of each one using a hacksaw. Today the crayons are back in their rightful place, my son is none the wiser, and I’m the proud owner of a new necklace!

I have seen these pencil crayon necklaces on the web before and have been itching to have a go. They are really easy to make. I used a junior hacksaw, tiny drill bit, sandpaper and a length of cotton. Each crayon-bead is 0.6mm in length. If anyone wants a more in-depth how-to please let me know.

I reckon they would make a lovely handmade present. All you need to do is add a nice clasp…sorted!
