Thank you for joining me for this St. Patrick’s Day Blog Hop! We’ve got 17 crazy talented bloggers sharing St. Patrick’s Day crafts – on a budget! Each blogger was given a budget of no more than $10 and challenged to create a St. Patrick’s Day craft using items from the dollar store or dollar section of their local stores. To see all their creations, check out the links at the end of the post. 

Rainbow Tassel Necklace

I have to admit that I bent the rules for this challenge. I only used one item from the Dollar store with the remaining items purchased at the craft store using coupons, which helped keep me at $10. However, I have a good reason for breaking the rules – my daughter needed something green to keep her pinch-free on St. Patrick’s Day. And since green clothing isn’t her fave, we decided to create a Rainbow Tassel Necklace! St. Patrick's Day Rainbow Tassel Necklace

Wrap the thread around the cardboard 5 times around. Tape the end down to the back of the cardboard and cut. Repeat the above two steps with each thread color. Cut an 8″ length of green thread and run it under all the thread loops. Tie in a tight knot.
    3. Making a rainbow tassel Slide all the loops off the cardboard. Set aside. With 12″ of green thread, create a loop.
