We had so much fun making these little beads. I invited my family over, we all sat down and got a bit messy. I loosely used this recipe.
We added colors with both tempera and acrylic paint. I didn't notice a difference in the texture of the dried beads.
Then we grabbed some random tools that we found in the junk drawer and started cutting out beads.
We let the cut beads dry for a bit and then made small holes in the middle so we could string them.
Finally we let them dry overnight.
After we strung them I added a layer of Mod Podge to some to make them a bit shiny.
Our little bead making party was so fun! I can't wait for the next crafty party.
