Today's project is a fun one to do with your kids. All you need is the wooden beads you find at the craft's store and some twine.
First you are going to paint the beads. Now that my girls are home for the summer, there is always someone who wants to paint for me. They would never admit it... but they are all pretty crafty!
I stuck toothpicks in the beads so they were easier to paint. Once the beads were dry, I added polka dots with an eraser. You could also use a toothpick, or a small paint brush. I've seen them dipped in paint halfway which was cute too. Doesn't really matter!
I decided to string the beads on red and white baker's twine. You can use whatever you have in the house... yarn, string, cord.
What a cute project for a couple dollars! Your kids will love making them for everyone! Don't forget to tune in Saturday morning on fox 9 http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/ at 7:45 a.m. I will be sharing this project and lots more!
