I’ve got a cute little craft that is fun for all ages (even age 33!) Wood chip necklaces!wood chip necklace resized kids craftsHere’s what you need to make your own:

Wood chips

something to drill a hole in the wood chip


necklace or keychain


You can find a bag of wood chips at Walmart or Joanns.  There are a variety of sizes–some are a little too big for necklaces or keychains. (but I’m already working on something fun to do with those!)wood chip diy


You will need to drill a hole in the top to add your keychain or necklace….

I use my husband’s drill and it makes it go real fast! Make sure to get close to the top so you can add a jump ring or keychain…but not too close or it will break!


There are tons of ways to decorate–Just grab some paint and let them go! (you could use markers if you aren’t a paint fan!)

I thought this would be a great camping craft–and if you have mad skills with a saw you could even make your own wood chips–then use leaves or flowers as stencils!

and…you can make them reversible!!
