The story of how I acquired this necklace is a little embarrassing. My big sister got an abacus for Christmas, and since the moment I first saw it I made it my mission to destroy it. I just wanted to see what those beautiful beads were all about. I had to break apart the abacus to get to them, and my sister (and parents) were pretty upset.
Hey y’all! Today Ellie has a fun and super cute necklace tutorial. This is her favorite necklace and she wears it almost every day. Take it away Ellie!
Hi everyone! For those of you who are new to Styled by Ellie my name is Ellie, and I’m a 2-year-old who loves fashion. I have a style all my own, and sharing it with you is so fun!
My dad didn’t want to lose the beads, so he strung them on some butcher’s twine. I’ve been wearing it ever since!
I’m not saying to go out and break your sister’s abacus, I’m just saying…it’s a good source of beads!
Thank you Ellie for the disclaimer there! Ha!
If you’d like to make a necklace like Ellie’s you’ll need:
20 (or so) wooden beads
butcher’s twine (child’s head circumference +2″)
1. String the beads on the butcher’s twine.
2. Tie twine in a knot.
Super cool necklace.
Your kid will be the envy of the playground!
