DIY – Penne statement necklace

diy - penne necklace

I love to play with food. And pasta is just perfect to make crafts with. This beautiful necklace is made with penne! I wanted to make a statement piece and I think it turned out just perfect. What do you think?

The full instruction continues after the jump . . .

What you need

– 20 pieces of penne (plus a few more for breaking)
– paint
– a simple chain necklace
– glue gun
– cardboard
– scissors

How you make it

Paint the penne in the color of your choice. While you are waiting for the paint to dry cut the cardboard in the shape of the hangers. Put two of the penne pieces on your necklace. Now place one of the two smaller pieces of cardboard underneath it and use the glue gun to make the penne stick to the cardboard. Glue the the other four pieces of penne underneath it to finish the first hanger. Now repeat for the bigger hanger and the other smaller hanger.

That’s it. A beautiful penne statement necklace made by you!

    Thanks for posting this. I love it! May give this a try. I like how you painted it electric blue…kind of makes it look like turquoise.

    Forget about climate change, and so our economy will
    increasingly be depleted by restoring communities after fire, flood, drought,
    and ravaging storms – estimates put the dollar amount at $1 trillion in restoration because of
    climate-related disasters. Here are just a few that have been noticed over
    the past month:. Today and tomorrow is an
    opportunity for Nebraskans to get out to Werner Park, home of the Storm – Chasers, and watch the next two
    games in the series.
