NOTE: I already had the screw eye bolts and the chain. Make sure you use a small eye screw yet large enough to fit the small size ball chain. Though I link to the general categories below on Amazon, I suggest buying them locally so you can match sizes.

    This is SUPER cute and sounds super easy to make. I’m looking around for VD ideas for my class. Not sure what to go with that won’t break the bank for 19 kiddos and myself of course lol If I can pull up the materials for this, all I would need are the screws because I already have corks from my sister and the kiddos can use these as a keychain or addition to their book reward necklaces. Basically thinking aloud here lol Thanks for the DIY!

      You’re very welcome L! Those screw eyelets should be less than a dollar for a pack at any hardware store or hardware section. Very cheap indeed. The corks might be trickier to find unless you know someone who’s a regular wine drinker! You could also use string for the necklaces. Good luck if you decide to do it!
