Quick craft // Bug necklaces

My boys love wearing necklaces and bracelets so we’ve been making some. I think I like the plastic-bug look!

Bug necklaces

I didn’t do a full how-to for this – it’s pretty straight forward. We used superglue to attach a single hama bead to the back of the bug. Then we threaded some cord through…easy. If you dont have superglue to hand then you can always just bind your bug in embroidery thread…then attach the cord.

Please remember: These are suitable for over 3′s only….and do go steady with the super-glue!

    hey have you painted the bugs? are these just wee bugs found in deep toy boxes?

      Hi Lynne…no, straight from the toybox ^_^

  3. I think it would be awesome to go one step further and spray paint them silver or gold for “real” jewellery! Very cute idea! :-)

      Yep…good idea Caitlin ^_^

  4. Oh now that is really cool.. and so simple and clever!

    My 3 year old would love this, and we have a few bug toys kicking around that would nicely do the job! May I say, how sweet is your child!

      Ahh…thanks Susan. He’s quite kookie and we love him very much! (He doesn’t like having his picture taken as you can tell).

      Both my boys loved their necklaces so I’m sure your 3yo will love theirs too ^_^

  6. After I originally commented I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are
    added- checkbox and from now on every time a comment
    is added I receive four emails with the same comment.
    Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!
