Create your own mini beach ball necklace with the kids this Summer! I'm all about a craft for the kids so I was pretty excited to work on this project.

I knew I wanted to do a Summer craft so I started thinking what are some fun things for Summer.  My first thought was the beach.  So a beach ball craft came to mind right away. I have a TON of wooden beads so I knew they would be perfect for a beach ball craft!

Items needed:

  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Snow (Titanium) White
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Citron Green
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Banana Cream
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Coral
  • Americana Acrylics 2oz - Sea Breeze
  • Wooden Beads
  • Cording
  • Assorted Brushes

Instructions:

It was hard to pick out my favorite colors for this project, but of course I wanted to go with a beachy feel and classic beach ball look.

Step 1 - I painted all the beads white first.  I only needed to paint on one coat and let dry 10 minutes.

Tip: You can add your beads to a thin paint brush. This will help keep the beads in place and make it easier to paint.

Step 2 - Now it's time to add your fun colors!! Since the beads have holes at the top I felt the lines didn't need to be perfect. So I decided not to tape them off. Just let the kids free hand their lines. They can start thinner at the top and a little wider in the middle.

Step 3 - Finally I decided to make the mini beach balls into a fun necklace.  You could even make them into a keychain.  The possibilities are endless!
