Yesterday evening I ‘borrowed’ eight of my sons crayons and surreptitiously removed 7mm from the end of each one using a hacksaw. Today the crayons are back in their rightful place, my son is none the wiser, and I’m the proud owner of a new necklace!
I have seen these pencil crayon necklaces on the web before and have been itching to have a go. They are really easy to make. I used a junior hacksaw, tiny drill bit, sandpaper and a length of cotton. Each crayon-bead is 0.6mm in length. If anyone wants a more in-depth how-to please let me know.
I reckon they would make a lovely handmade present. All you need to do is add a nice clasp…sorted!
I also stole a whole orange pencil and made a pointy necklace too 🙂
Off topic: Sorry it’s been a little quiet here of late. I have a big project on the go and it’s taking up every spare second. It’s probably going to be quiet for the next eight weeks or so but after that it will be business as usual.
In the Autumn I’m planning on redesigning the site a little and am going to somehow split it into two sections – so that there is a kids craft section and an adult crafts section.
I promised Aimee from Home Spun Threads that I would give her site a big shout out. She is running a ‘Summer Soiree’ (guest blog series) during May. Check it out because there are some lovely posts. I’m digging the ladybug basket. Very cute indeed! My youngest son is obsessed with bags at the moment so this is on our to-do list tomorrow.
My little (big) boy, Seth, was 4 last week! Hurray! I just want to rewind and replay the last four years…it’s been ACE.
