An Indigo Beads DIY


Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 10.44.12 AM Materials
  • colored clay
  • suede cord or hemp
  • a baking sheet
  • a toothpick
  • acrylic paint
  • paintbrushes

1. Roll the clay into balls and use a toothpick to create a hole (make the hole a bit bigger than you'd like since the beads will shrink slightly when baked).

2. Bake the beads on a baking sheet according to the instructions on the clay package.

3. Paint the beads after they've cooled. Use fine paintbrushes or the head of a nail to create polka dots — get creative!

4. String them onto suede cord or hemp to create necklaces.
