Mother's Day Ideas: Model Magic Necklaces
Here we used Model Magic to make beads for a beautiful (Grand)Mother's Day necklace. Model Magic is very light weight so the beads are not heavy like clay.
Roll the Model Magic into small balls. Poke onto skewer. Reshape if squished by process. Move skewer around to make hole large enough to thread later. You can use skewer to make dents on the beads too. Let dry.
We just used markers to decorate our beads. Polks Dots seemed to be easiest and fast. The Model Magic is still somewhat soft so just put the marker tip to the bead and lightly press for a perfect dot. Remember to decorate outside edge because that is what will be showing.
String onto ribbon or yarn. We used a piece of packing tape wrapped around the ribbon to create a stiff end (needle) for threading.
Have fun crafting with your kids! Mama King
