DIY Seed Friendship Necklace


Hi guys! I’m excited to bring you a week full of projects and ideas all inspired by the nostalgic memories of summer camp! Campfires, summer games, classic crafts and outdoor games. Whether you have your own childhood memories from summer camps or feel inspired by classic films like Wet, Hot American Summer and The Parent Trap, these projects are all quintessential summer fun.

First up, these pretty friendship necklaces made from seed beads. Henry and I have been working on these all summer! They’re a great project to do with kids (I’d say ages 5 and up) and the result is pretty enough to wear on your own as well.

DIY seed necklace

We picked up some seed beads at our local hobby store as well as monofilament fishing wire. To make things easy we just knotted the ends together instead of using closures.

There are so many different kinds of designs you can make, I find myself making new versions of these necklaces all the time to keep my fidgety hands busy. It brought back so many memories too. Did you make these seed necklaces growing up?  Or maybe the string variety?

These are darling! Did Henry help you? I would love to do these with my kids, do you have any tips on seed beading with little fingers??


Little fingers do just fine with seed beads. I go to Central Europe to teach conversational English each year, and I bring beading projects and seed beads with me. The younger children learn very fast!
