Angel Necklace

This angel necklace is a  super quick, easy, and thrifty gift.It is pefect for coworkers, neighbors, or makes a great gift your children can make for teachers, grandparents, and more.

I received this from a coworker last year for Christmas, and knew you guys would love it too.

Jan's Tip: The paperclips used in this necklace are often called butterfly paper clips or Ideal clips/clamps and are found in any office supply store.

  1. That is so cute and can't get much easier than that. When I first seen this I thought to myself' how in the world can you bend a paper clip like this and make it look so neat. Then in the supply list I seen that they can be purchased........thank goodness for that.
    These would even be cute on a package or given to Sunday School children or just hang on a tree.
    Thanks for the step by step instructions.
    Have a Wonderful and Blessed ThanksGiving
