Cool Off Sponge Necklace Tutorial for Hot, Hot Days

By on Saturday, July 14, 2012 3 Comments

Hot enough for you?  Well, I am sweltering in this current heat wave.  Here is a wonderful idea from Kimberley who writes the Tiny Funnel blog - a sponge necklace! Wet it down, chill in the freezer for 30 minutes and pop it on!



Although a little boy models the necklace in her post, she agrees with me, it's not just for kids.  She told me, " I actually wore mine to the grocery store the other day. It is 90 degrees F here!"


The sponge necklace makes so much sense as one's body heat will be conducted away.  I once wrote about real ice cube jewelry which does the same thing but only far more drippy!

  1. Oh my god, I love this!!! How I wish I had one around my neck right now..... So simple and fun! And highly, highly practical in this weather :) It's brutal right now in NYC!

  2. Brutal is right - I've got to try this or make an ice cube necklace myself!

  3. It's a great idea (in extreme heat, having something cool or cold on the back of the neck, actually helps cool the body and prevents heat stroke).
    I bet these bright, lightweight necklaces are a favorite with children - can imagine they would even make for a wonderful kids craft project.
