The new movie Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax is going to be released tomorrow. So far I’ve made cupcake toppers, a party mask and a story board – what else could I possibly have up my sleeve? Well, I went to the craft store the other day and stopped in the clay aisle. I was instantly inspired by the colors that I saw. What else could I make but a Lorax clay bead necklace? I had a great time creating these beads, and I didn’t use anything but my fingers. Clay is safe for older children to use as well. How did I made this Lorax bead necklace? Continue through the jump to find out!
These beads are SO fun and easy to make. Older children will love to get involved – but make sure an adult does all the baking! Check out my tutorial in this slideshow.
All I needed was FIMO clay in tangerine and yellow, as well as a paperclip. Use whatever you like to string the beads on - I used Darice leather cord.
