For this craft, all you will need is:
  1. Lots of paper clips!

Here are the steps to completing this craft:

1. Make a strand of clips of each color: The first thing you need to do is separate the clips by color and then clip them together in long strands. Each color strand should be one clip longer than the previous strand. So for example, the closest strand to your neck would have 12 clips, the next color would have 13, the next 14, and so on.

2. Attach all strands to one paperclip: Next step is to attach each strand of paperclips to one single paperclip. Make sure to attach them in the order in which you want to display them.

3. Adjust length as desired: The 3rd and final step is to add as many paperclips as you want to get the desired length. I attached 4 clips to the back of the necklace, but you can add as many as you want!
