These lovely pipe cleaner links can be chained together to make a necklace, crown, or belt. Plus, you only need inexpensive craft materials you probably already have in your house.

Step 1: For each link, fold half a pipe cleaner in half and twist the ends together, as shown at right.

Step 2: Pull a blossom off a branch of artificial flowers. Put a bit of glue on the ends of the pipe cleaner and insert them into the hole in the back of the flower.

Step 3: Make the hook using the same method, but glue a large plastic bead to the ends, as shown at right.

Step 4: Start your chain by slipping a flower link's looped end through the hook's loop. Add more links by slipping stems through loops.
