So with all the cold, snowy weather we've been having lately, I had the urge to make something pretty and spring-like.

After checking the coming trends, I settled on one focus: nuts.  Unfortunately, I'm a teacher and with all the peanut allergies, I couldn't wear a nut to school.  However, I found a solution: a packing peanut.

Using 3 strands of turquoise embroidery floss and some beads and stones I had squirreled away, I centered the peanut in the place of honor.  I think it turned out great, and will definitely be something that will get noticed!

What do you think?

So pretty! I'd never have thought that's what that was without you telling me!

What a great use of packing peanuts! I wouldn't have imagined they could look so beautiful.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Styrofoam is forever! Just think, this necklace is going to look just as good in 50 years as it does today! Awesome upcycling!  Wink
