Let’s Make Something! | Beads


Yay! Well, it only took us about 3 months to make another one of these videos. Remember our bath bomb one? Whoops. I even video taped this one in August but just never got around to editing it till now. Better late than never I guess? I’ve been painting wooden beads like a mad women around here for the necklaces I’ve been selling in my etsy shop. The idea actually came from making beads and hand painting them with Rowan one day. It’s a super fun craft to do with your little one!


Craft Paint
Paint Brushes
Air Dry Clay ( I like the Delight brand. Super light weight for kids!)
Yarn Needle
Clasps (Magnetic Clasps work best for little kids. They can take it on and off easily and if it ever got caught a slight pressure would break it off)

Have Fun!

  16. jen, you and your family are so sweet! love following your adventures. I do painted wood beads too, and wanted a way for my boys to join in on the fun so this video is perfect. they love clay projects and now they can make necklaces like momma! thanks for the video. and for the lovely and happy blog!

  17. Rowan is so adorable! My 4-year-old kept asking “What did she say?” (seeing as she doesn’t speak much English just yet, being Norwegian), and demanded that we too make beads. πŸ™‚ We ended up painting on cups with porcelain paint pens instead, as we didn’t have any clay lying around.

    Your blog always cheers me up, and I’m thrilled whenever there’s a new post! Thank you for being such an inspiration!

  18. How fun! And what a precious video πŸ™‚ I’m having my first baby in Feb, its a girl! Can’t wait to do crafts with her!! Thanks for the great ideas and being an awesome mom!
