Necklace Making

making pearl necklaceSparkling neclaces can be made at home, rather than buying it from outside spendings hundreds of rupees. Here is an easy way to make neclaces at home.

Materials Needed:

    Film Container
    Cotton Balls
    Flower or Vegetable Seeds
    Screw Eye Hook

This works great with the clear containers. Put two-four cotton balls into the container. Tuck in about a few seeds between the cotton balls and the outside of the container, so that you can see them. Large seeds work best. Peas, Cantalope, etc. Add a few drops of water, just until cotton balls are damp, but not soaked and not enough to puddle water on bottom of container.

Use a screw-eye with a medium size eye on it and screw it through the center of the lid. Put the lid on the container tightly. Braid three pieces of yarn long enough to go around the child's neck and slip over the head. Thread yarn through the screw eye and tie in a circle.

Kids like to wear these necklaces and watch the seeds sprout and grow inside the container. If you time this right, you can plant them into starter pots when they get too big for the container, or outside into the garden.
