Step-by-step triangle drinking straw necklace

Step 1
Trim down your drinking straws to various sizes, approx. 3cm, 2cm and some smaller ‘connectors’.
Step 2 (triangle necklace) Select three 3 cm beads and three connector beads in bright contrasting colors. Cut a length of yarn or thread to the length you want your necklace to be.
Step 3
Thread the 3cm straw beads onto the length of yarn, with three connector beads intersecting as shown.
Step 4
Take one end of your yarn and thread it through the 3cm bead at the other end of the yarn.
Step 5
Pull both ends to make a triangle in the centre of your yarn…
Step 6
Knot the ends together to make a necklace.
