There were leather necklaces, slide necklaces and bracelets, earrings and even a watch! I decided to work on a key pendant and attach the final product to a leather necklace. I also made accent earrings. The most difficult part of this entire project was figuring out the color combinations and beads that I wanted to use. Each bead strand has a variety of beads and I mixed and matched for this pretty blue and pink creation. The top of the key simply twists off and I added my bead choices.
I did the same for my earrings. I have to say that the final project is something that not only would I wear but I'd be proud to give as a gift to my family members.
Mix and Mingle is great if you enjoy designing your own jewelry or for a friend who likes to make jewelry. I am pretty sure that a few people on my Christmas list will receive this gift from me.
Walmart also has a large selection of crafts for girls and boys of all ages. I was sent this selection and know my son is going to have a ball playing with both the Zombie set and the power ball kit. The other kits I am donating to a local shelter. I know there are little girls out there who'd love a friendship making kit and the memo board.
I took the Power ball craft on a test run before my son tries it out. And I found it to be a quick and simple craft that we can easily do together.
You simply pour your chosen color combinations into one of the molds, place the filled mold in a cup for five minutes, remove and let dry for 5 -10 minutes. And voila, you have a bouncing ball!
All of these crafts are perfect for gifting and honestly I wouldn't mind receiving some of the DIY jewelry myself! You can find them all at Walmart.
