DIY Old School Craft – Shrinky Dink necklaces!!!

Shrinky Dink - Step 4 Shrinky Dink Necklace Craft

Last year, I created this craft for Netflix’s StreamTeam. I’m still obsessed with it. Doesn’t it just remind you of when you were in your bedroom playing with Care Bears and He Man figurines? Sigh* I love this stuff.

Shrinky Dink - Step 1


  • Shrinky Dink paper (available at Michaels Stores.) – I chose the frosted kind for some old school fun.
  • Colored pencils
  • Oven
  • Scissors
  • Hole puncher
  • Brown paper bag
  • Old chain necklace or cord
  • Glass pan or cookie sheet


Shrinky Dink - Step 2

Step 1: Draw or trace designs with colored pencils. Then cut themout and use your hole puncher to punch a hole at the top.

Shrinky Dink - Step 3

Step 2: Cut a brown paper bag to the size of your cookie sheet or glass pan and place it inside. Place your designs on top.

Step 3: Preheat your oven to 325°. Place Shrinky Dinks inside, turn on the oven light and watch as they shrink. Bake for 1-3 minutes. Note: The designs will curl and move, but don’t worry, they will fall back to their original shape. Remove from oven and let cool.

Step 4: Thread your charms onto a chain necklace or cord. Shrinky Dink Necklace Craft
