To create your own necklace like this, all you need are some straws, a can of gold spray paint (or silver if you prefer), some long black shoestrings and two gold (or silver) bolts.
- Cut straws into 16 pieces, each 1.5 inches long.
- Spray the straws with the gold spray paint and let dry for 24 hours.
- Weave the two shoelaces through the straws.
- Thread bolts through the shoelace ends.
- Put around your neck.
