DIY MNZ 5 superballs necklace

This necklace is a fun, 
colorful,
and definitely playful one!
It will take 10 minutes to make, 
and {last but not least}
less than 5$!!

What you need:

Go to the closest toys store and treat yourself with 4 small superballs and one slightly bigger.
Do you have some leather cord? I thought so.
And a drill, for that we have dads/husbands/brothers ;) !!!



1* Because I didn't have a way to keep the superball in place while drilling, without the risk of drilling into my own fingers, I taped the superballs on the corner of a scrap piece of wood.


2* After the drilling, this is how it's going to look like, powdery and smells like burned plastic!


3* There now you have 5 giant rubber beads!


4* Tie a knot at about 2/3 of your leather cord.


5* Pass the leather cord into your rubber beads/ superball


6* Tie another knot


7* Repeat for 4 more times and... voila'!

Tie a knot on both ends of the leather cord and you're ready to sport your new necklace !



have fun!

  3. You come up with the craziest ideas! So fun. Love your solution for drilling into them, I was wondering how you'd do it with the ball flying across the room. Great project~

  6. Taping the superballs on the corner of a scrap piece of wood while drilling is a great idea! I would never figure it out by myself.
