Gumball Necklace

Simple and sweet! Perfect for everything from kids parties to Pride or raves… This brings a new meaning to “candy” 😉

What you need
– Gumballs
– Thick sewing pin
– String or thick thread

How to do it
– Thread the sewing pin
– Poke the gumball with the sewing pin

Be careful and slow when you’re doing this. The second step is better for bigger hands! If little kids are making the necklace, pre-poke the holes for them, like this:

Bracelets and Necklaces

If something has a hole in it, you might be able to use it to make a bracelet or necklace!

These were made using Hama beads, which are plastic pieces that are meant to be placed on a peg board and then ironed together to make a design.

This was made from a piece off of a board that teaches kids their letters and numbers, along with traditional wooden beads.

Have you made bracelets and necklaces from things not intended to be jewellery beads?
