Disney Craft: Princess-Inspired Necklaces!

by Crafting in the Rain on April 16, 2013 2

Hey Disney fans, Steph from Crafting in the Rain here. If you like finding ways to wear your Disney love, today's post is perfect for you.

Tiana necklace

I'm sure you've all seen different styles of necklaces that have pictures of princesses on them. They're cute, but what if you are looking for something a little more subtle and grown up even? Each of these beads was designed to represent a specific princess. Can you identify who I had in mind? Check your matching skills, then I'll show you how to make your own.

Assorted beads


Here's what you'll need:

  • 3/4 inch wood beads, found at the craft store
  • 2 small paint pointed, one flat
  • craft paint in assorted colors
  • painter's tape (for Pocahontas)
  • 5/8 inch-wide ribbon wood skewers, for holding beads while painting

For Tiana: Using flat brush, paint bead light green. When dry, paint pointed pattern in dark green using the pointed brush.

For Cinderella: Paint bead white with flat brush. Then add 4 bumps in light blue, filling in that side of the bead as well.

For Belle: Paint bead white. Paint scalloped lines with yellow using pointed brush.

For Pocahontas: Paint bead tan. When completely dry, wrap a piece of painter's tape to make a line at the halfway point of the bead. Paint the exposed part of the bead dark brown. Remove tape, let dry, and using a brush handle, dot turquoise "beads" around the center line.

Pochahontas necklace

For Rapunzel: Paint bead purple. Then paint two thin lines of light pink and draw criss-cross lines between them.

What's great is that now you know how to paint each bead, you've got options! You can paint several matching ones and make one whole necklace that represents one princess. Or, mix and match, creating a necklace with several favorite ones!

To create the actual necklace, measure your desired necklace size (shorter if you want to re-tye it every time or longer if you want to to slip it over your or your child's head) Wrap some tape around the end of the ribbon to make a point and thread the beads on. Then remove the tape and melt the ribbon ends carefully with a match so they don't unravel. Now, let's say you love the concept here, but not the detail, or all of the steps involved for each one. I've got you covered! Hop over to my blog today for more simplified versions where each bead is one solid color. And, there are even more princess necklaces over there -- I made 11 total!

So let's hear it -- who is your favorite princess? Check out more of our Disney crafts and other ways to Make Every Day Magical!
