Customize your Bead Dangler

What I love most about kid-friendly crafts like this one is how everyone can customize their bead dangler to their liking. From the pattern of the beads and the colors to the personalized tag. 

To make your bead dangler:

1- Start by customizing your own tag. Since we are using paint it will take longer to dry so we can get these out the way. TIP: if you are working with little ones consider using markers or crayons both can work great! 

2- Cut at least 12inches of cord for your bead dangler. Fold in half and loop your personalized tag thru  and secure with a bead.

3- Begin looping your beads thru the 2 strands of cord and let your kids get creative with bead patterns.

4-Knot your cord to secure your beads before finishing off your knots loop a bead

5- On the last bead looped in with knots, attach a recycled keychain ring.
