Making a Graduation Money Lei

Struggling to find a graduation gift that your high school graduate will truly appreciate? Look no further – money is always a great option! But let’s make it extra special with a money lei that will bring a smile to their face.

What You Need to Make a Graduation Money Lei

  • Dollar bills: You can use as many as you like, starting from $20 and up. For this tutorial, we used 40 $1 bills.
  • Ribbon
  • Tape (single or double-sided)
  • Colored paper (optional)
  • Beads (optional)

How to Make a Money Lei Necklace

  1. Start with a dollar bill.
  2. Fold the bill into an accordion shape, folding approximately a centimeter at a time.
  3. Fold your accordion in half.
  4. Use a tiny piece of tape to secure the ends together at the fold.
  5. Open the other side of the folded bill and tape the two end bands around the center with a ribbon inside the fold.
  6. Repeat these steps for all your bills.
  7. Once you have folded and taped all the bills, string them onto your ribbon.
  8. The length of the lei and the ribbon can vary. We recommend starting with a ribbon approximately four feet long, giving you the flexibility to add other items and still have enough room to tie it.
  9. You can also add a bow to the end of the lei for an extra decorative touch.

  • Incorporate beads and bows between the bills to add fillers and make the lei more unique.

Remember, the goal is to create a lei that reflects your graduate’s personality and achievements. However, even a lei made purely with money will still be greatly appreciated.
