I was delighted when Bijou told me she wanted to have an art party this year for her birthday. In search of some inspiration, I checked a few of my go-to blogs where I quickly fell in love with this project by Mer Mag via Handmade Charlotte.
Ooh, imagine my disappointment when I couldn't find those sweet wooden wheels at the craft store. I decided to substitute for wooden beads instead. Bijou was in love when I showed her the finished product as were Eero & Wilder who are both completely ball-obsessed at two. Luckily, I had a few extras they could throw around the living room this evening since not allowing them to play with the new necklace, surely would have resulted in some anger and frustration.
To make: No explanation is needed. You just paint the beads and hang them on a string. I used hemp string which is soft, neutral and oh so Berkeley.
