The summer boredom buster activity of the day is quite easy and inexpensive. I made a little necklace for Allison with one of her favorite One Direction band members pictures one day, and it suddenly became the hit of all the girls that saw it. I don’t know how many requests I got to make them one. Instead, I did what any crafty mama would do- went and bought the supplies and told them to make their own.
Square Bales (I bought these and the chain at Hobby Lobby for 1/2 price, so this whole thing cost less than $2.50 to make)
Printed out picture of your choosing
After you find the picture you want, resize it, print it out, then clip it down to the same shape and size of the bale.
Place a thin layer of Mod Podge on the bale, then cover with your picture.
Once it is dry, brush another layer of Mod Podge over the picture to seal it.
And there you have a custom necklace. Cheap, easy and something the kids will get a kick out of because it’s a one of a kind :)
On a side note, I am starting to think I should be getting a commission for all the One Direction mentions on here lol.
