DIY Clay Gumball Necklace

DIY Clay Gumball Necklace I made this necklace as a knock off of a necklace selling for about $50 a pop. Sadly, I’m currently experience a bad case of mommy brain and can’t remember where I found them online. But know that somewhere out there someone rolled a couple of dollars worth of clay and decided to sell it for crazy amounts of money. Because this – like most of my DIYs – is embarrassingly easy to make!

You’ll need: clay in the colors you want (this project is great for using up leftovers from this necklace), some twine and a toothpick.

Step 1: Roll the clay into gumball sized balls and poke them through with a toothpick. Bake according to package directions.

Step 2: String the gumballs and tie a knot on either side of them so that they don’t slide around. Tie a knot in the twine for a closure.

I recommend making at least two necklaces because they look great layered!

    Love this! I’ve been wanting to dabble with clay jewelry for awhile now but have been nervous that it would look too kindergarten crafty. But this is so pretty! I’m going to have to get brave and try it. Maybe this weekend. This is another DIY my daughter would looooove.
