- plastic balls
- metallic twine
- jingle bells
- pom poms
- washi tape
Grab 1 side of a plastic ball and fill it with various sequin shapes and pom poms. Don’t forget to add in a jingle bell or 2!
Once you’ve filled your 1 side of the ball, get the other side and connect the two together. Make sure the top 2 holes are aligned for easy stringing in the next step.
Get your metallic twine and cut it to a desired necklace length. Remember to leave some extra length for knotting. It’s always an easy fix to make your necklace shorter if needed.
Start stringing your beads onto your metallic twine. If you want to work in a specific pattern, it might be easier to lay out the bead pattern before you start stringing. Random patterns are always fun too, so let your imagination go wild!
Once you’ve strung half the number of beads, you’re going to string your ball on so it will be the center of your necklace.
Continue stringing your beads on the other side of the ball. You want to add beads until you have an equal number on either side of the ball.
After stringing all your beads, check your necklace length. If you’re happy with the length, tie your string ends together. A double knot will be best to make sure it’s secure.
Lastly, cut a small piece of washi tape and place it on your ball to help ensure both sides stay connected.
Now you have a completed New Year’s Eve Jingly Party Necklace. Time to play some music and start your countdown to 2022!
