Are you a fan of chunky, rustic jewellery?

 

These beautiful wooden pendant necklaces were a hit at our recent Mothers’ Day toddler craft session. With just three materials needed and no drying time required you could hardly find a more simple yet eye-catching homemade jewellery idea. We had a handy father-in-law cut and sand a branch of light coloured driftwood into 1cm thick rounds (alternatively purchase wooden discs from a craft shop). A small hole was drilled into the top of each piece and then the children set to work with black fine-liners or Sharpies to create a monochromatic design. We threaded through a piece of hot pink builders’ string, from the hardware store, to complete the project.ย Some creative students even used gold striped washi tape for added effect.
