This summer craft for kids looks super stylish when paired with a light-weight sundress or works amazingly as a statement necklace when worn with a plain tee or tank top. This duct tape craft is perfect as a birthday party activity or makes an awesome 4H project. Whatever ensemble your girls wear it with, this DIY necklace is this summer's trending new fashion statement.

Whoa, I definitely thought this necklace was made out of beads at first. If I made it, I would probably use solid color duct tape, but I'm sure kids love the patterns!
