DIY: Beaded Despicable Me Minion Necklaces
August 20, 2014
Blue and Yellow Pony Beads 6mm (35 of each color per necklace)
1mm elastic cord (19-20" per necklace)
Optional: some sort of pendant ( I used wooden Minion buttons purchased on eBay which I drilled tiny holes at the top of for use as pendants).
The overall length of the necklace is approximately 18" not including the pendant.
I alternated the bead colors and triple knotted the cord and made sure it was tight. Trim the excess cord and attach pendant if desired. I used 8mm split rings to attach the buttons to the necklace.
I also made some bracelets using these same beads and elastic cord, but without the pendant. I have made 2 sizes for the kids, and will probably make some larger ones for any adults who may want them.
For the smallest size I used 10 beads of each color; the next larger size (which I'm calling "medium") I used 12 beads of each size; and if I make the adult/large size I will use 13 or 14 beads of each color.
