Finally a good use for plastic drinking straws!
We all them… stashed in the cubbyhole of our car, or in the dreaded kitchen drawer where everything ‘else’ gets shoved into. But no matter where they are gathering dust, here is the best use for your plastic straws!
Please DO NOT go out and purchase or ask your local eatery for plastic straws to do this. Search for the one’s that you already have, and use them 🙂
Unclasp the two ends of your necklace. Hold a drinking straw vertically, and drop the smaller end of your necklace clasp down through the straw. When the necklace comes out through the bottom of the straw, reconnect the two ends of your necklace.
- This method may work best with thinner necklaces, and necklaces that don’t have an attached and immovable pendant in the center of the chain. The pendant will not be able to fit through the straw.
- If your necklace has an immovable pendant, consider cutting the straw in half, threading one chain on the side of the pendant through the straw.
