DIY Captain Marvel Necklace: Upcycled From Comic Book Pages

Superhero Craft: DIY Captain Marvel Necklace 

Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero film, Captain Marvel, is ready to fly into your home! With 1 billion dollars in ticket sales, you can bring home the action on Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD™ June 11! Can’t wait? It’s available now on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ and Movies Anywhere. I’m scrolling comic book pages again and feeling a bit nostalgic. It’s exciting to see strong and equal female representation in a big-screen superhero movie. To celebrate the release, I’ve created this awesome DIY Captain Marvel Necklace

DIY Captain Marvel Necklace: made with upcyled comic book pages, this superhero craft is perfect for teens! The beads are hand-rolled and you can customize with your favorite colors. #SuperheroCraft #CaptainMarvel #DIY #JewelryMaking #MarvelStudios

I drew inspiration from the Hala Star that the main character, Carol Danvers, wears on her suit. I knew that had to be eye-catching and gold – just like hers.

Each long bead a strip of upcycled comic book paper. They’re tightly rolled and lacquered to create a bead. Each one is unique. My favorite ones have a bit comic book word bubbles on them! Check out the official trailer for Captain Marvel and see why she inspired me to create this fun superhero craft.

How To Make Your DIY Captain Marvel Necklace

This intermediate craft is perfect for Tweens, Teens and Adults. It doesn’t require much skill, but you have to use a lot of dexterity that young kids struggle with. All together, I spent less than $12 in supplies. You probably already own many of the required materials.

What You’ll Need:

  • Captain Marvel Comic Book
  • Small Glass Craft Beads
  • Table Salt
  • Flour
  • Water
  • Gold Spray Paint
  • Glue Stick
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Stretch Jewelry Cord 
  • Jewelry Clasp
  • Clear Nail Polish
  • Toothpicks

To start, combine 1 cup of salt with 2 cups of flour in a large bowl. Gradually add 3/4 cup of water to form a salt dough. Knead the dough until combined. Roll into 1/4 inch thick dough.

Use a Hala Star template to trace over the dough with a pencil. Gently, use a knife to cut the star out. I made a back up star – just in case I needed it. Poke a hole at the top of your star. This is where your cord will slide through.

Bake at 300º for 20 minutes or until hardened. Let cool and spray with gold spray paint. Set aside.

Secondly, you want to start making your comic book beads. Use a ruler to draw long triangles on top of your comic book pages.

The wider your triangle is, the longer the bead will be. I used exactly two pages of up cycled comic book pages.

Starting at the wide end of your triangle, roll the comic book page over your toothpick. Try to keep it straight and tight. As you get to the halfway point, add a little glue stick (especially to the tip).

Gently, push the bead off of the toothpick. Use clear nail polish to lacquer the finished bead. Repeat until all of your  comic book paper is used.

Lastly, start creating your necklace. Measure the length that you’d like your necklace and cut your cord. 12″ or 16″ are standard sizes. Leave a little extra length to tie a knot at the ends.

Place your Hala Star in the center. You’ll work evenly, from side to side, starting with the center of the necklace. Next, add a glass bead on either side and a paper bead.

Continue to repeat for the entire length of each side of the necklace. Make sure to end with a symmetrical look on either side.

To finish, knot a clasp on either side. I used a simple double knot.

Wear it as a causal look to show off your Marvel fandom and rock it like a nerd would!
