DIRECTIONS:

CANDY CANE TEARDROPS:
1. Find a candy cane twist design online. Print the candy cane design onto white cardstock.
2. Decoupage the candy cane twist pattern onto cardboard using Mod Podge®. Allow to dry.
3. When dry, cut out (5) teardrop shapes to fit behind the teardrop accents.
4. Use a small hole punch to punch a hole in top of each candy cane twist teardrop. Using (5) 6mm jump rings, connect (1) candy cane twist teardrop to the back of (5) teardrop accents.

NECKLACE
1. Cut (1) 8-1/2" length of chain. Bring both ends of chain together and use (1) 4mm jump ring to connect both ends together. Connect that 4mm jump ring to (1) 6mm jump ring. Connect the 6mm jump ring to one side of the toggle clasp. Repeat this step one more time and join the 2nd length of chain to the other side of the toggle clasp.
2. Using eye pins, make (4) single bead links using white glass beads and (2) single bead links using 6mm red glass beads. Using eye pins, make (9) double bead links using (18) 4mm red glass beads and (8) double bead links using (16) 4mm white glass beads. (Finish eye pins with a loop, taking care to line up the “holes” in the eyes on each end.)
3. Using (1) 4mm jump ring between each link, connect the following bead links together to create a bead link chain: (1) single 6mm white glass link, (1) single 6mm red glass bead link, (1) single 6mm white glass bead link, (1) double 4mm red glass bead link, (1) double 4mm white glass bead link, (1) double 4mm red glass bead link, (1) double 4mm white glass bead link, (1) double 4mm red glass bead link, (1) single 6mm white glass bead link, (1) single 6mm red glass bead link, and (1) single 6mm white glass bead link.
4. Using (10) 6mm jump rings, connect (10) individual clear sparkle dangle charms to the (10) 4mm jump rings that connect the bead links together in Step #3.
5. Using (1) 4mm jump ring, connect one end of the bead link chain from Steps #3 and #4 around a single strand on one length of silver chain from Step #1. Repeat this step connecting the other side of the bead link chain around a single strand on the other length of silver chain from Step #1.
6. Using (1) 4mm jump ring between each link, connect the following bead links to create a bead link chain: (1) double 4mm white glass bead link, (1) double 4mm red glass bead link, (1) double 4mm white glass bead link, (1) double 4mm red glass bead link, etc. until a total of (4) double links of each color have been connected.
7. Using (5) 6mm jump rings, connect the (5) candy cane teardrops to (1) 4mm jump ring between every other bead link in the bead link chain from Step#6.
8. Using (1) 4mm jump ring on each side, use the same technique as in Step #5 to connect each end of the bead link chain from Step #6 below the bead link chain from Step #5.
