Little Girl Necklaces

I know it is very close to Halloween and I wanted to get in one last post before my Halloween pictures. My kiddos are counting down the days, what kid wouldn't want candy and dress up??? A while back I had pinned a tutorial to make clay pendants. You can check the post out here from Ashley at Make it-Love it. She has a great tutorial with instructions on how to do it. I thought it would be pretty easy to make something cute for the girls. My girls love jewelry to dress up and play with. Have you ever looked at the stores for the kids jewelry  It is mostly either gaudy or lame. I thought these clay pendants would be a good middle ground because honestly I don't want to buy them something pricey quite yet. I am sure that they will lose it or break it or let the dog play with it or drop it in the grass or you get the picture. I spent an afternoon making these with the girls. They got to make some on their own which you can see in the next picture! I liked how these came out and are pretty cute for about $2! 

I was able to purchase my necklace supplied ahead of time so that i could make these when we were ready to go. It was great to be able to mold these to my kiddos liking, They really loved it :)

This is a large pile of what we made with 2 blocks of clay. The girls were not as finesse as I hoped they would be so many of their circles are quite thick! I used rubber stamps to make all the letters and had some fall stamps for the girls to use as well. Just a note: when I pulled these out of the oven they still seemed a bit flexible, but once you take them out they harden up. 

I also made one for my keys. You probably are thinking I don't need one more thing on my keys, but I like it :)

We ended up making these for some of the girls little friends and my kiddos were so excited to give them to each friend. 

Thanks for checking in and Halloween costumes are going to be posted later this week!
