Macaroni Jewelry

Macaroni crafts are great activities for children.  On a rainy day or during “down time,” kids can work on a number of different projects.  Making jewelry out of macaroni can be a really fun activity for kids and their parents. 
Macaroni bead necklace can be given to friends or relatives as a cute little gift.

 

What you need:
• Tape
• Food Colouring
• String
• Scissors
• Rubbing alcohol
• Measuring cups
• Spoon

What you do:
1. Pour ¼ cup of rubbing alcohol into a 12 to 16 oz cup and add anywhere from 5 to 15 drops of food colouring.
2. Add macaroni into the cup. Stir until all the colour is absorbed.
3. Spoon the macaroni onto a paper towel and let it dry.
4. Once the macaroni is dry, the jewellery making is ready to begin.
5. Cut the string at the desired length. Wrap one end of the string with tape so that sliding macaroni onto the string will be a little easier.
6. Slide a piece of macaroni all the way to the end of the string and tie a knot around it. This will help prevent other macaroni from sliding off the end.
7.  Continue to add macaroni until the string is full.
8.  Tie each end of the string together to complete the necklace.
