Hi, I'm Holly Silva, and I've been a crafts expert for about 15 years now and today I'm going to show you some wear red day craft ideas. Now wear red day, what is that? Usually if you're going to school and there's some sort of like an AIDS awareness day or even mother's against drunk driving often use red and black. Anything like that and maybe it just happens to be a day where everybody wants to wear red but you forgot it so you need to make something really quickly. So just grab a piece of red construction paper and some little design out of it. I am going to cut a heart because either of those days either of those reasons to wear red is usually a heartfelt reason. So you'll earn some extra points from your friends, coworkers and classmates and think if you forgot to wear red or need something just right off the cuff, and you know it's a heart. So here we go. Now here's a heart and what I'm going to do is just make like a little necklace out of it. So with a pen because I don't have here an X-Acto knife to cut out and maybe you don't because it's a little too dangerous. So what I'm going to do is just pop a hole through with a knife, excuse me with a pen, not a knife, and there we go. There's a hole. Should go through each side. OK. This one made a little bit bigger hole, that's OK. I mean you know it's not a piece of Tiffany jewelry so you can get away with things like that. As long as it doesn't tear all the way. And I have some black ribbon that I'm going to thread through. You can use any color ribbon you'd like. You can use you don't even have to use ribbon, in fact. You can use anything that you can use any type of string or yarn or you can make it like a choker style necklace with some craft wire. I like craft wire. And there you just pull through. And there you go. Very simply. Here is your wear red idea. Let's see if we can do this. Tie it around the neck like so and there we are. And now nobody can get mad at me for not wearing red on wear red day and I don't have to feel bad about it and I made up for it by wearing a heart. You can make yours any shape that you want, just have a good time. If you have any questions about this or anything else, let us know, we'd love to help you out. See you next time.
