This is inspired by Melros's Dragon Egg Necklace at Dad Can Do
The majority of time involved on this project is baking the fimo, allowing it to cool and allowing the paint to dry.
The cost to make this necklace was well under $1.
- Fimo Clay - used less than 1/4 of the brick for this project
- Tulip Glitter Dimensional Paint (or you could use a glitter glue stick)
- Straw (to make a hole in the top of the egg)
- Wooden skewer stick (optional - to hold the egg while painting it)
- Jump ring
I rolled a bit of the clay to form the shape of an egg, then stuck the straw through it to make the hole.
Bake for 30 mins at 230 degrees (or whatever the directions on the package indicate) then allow to cool for a few minutes.
You can use a wooden skewer or the small plastic straw to hold the egg while you decorate a design onto it with the fabric paint or glitter glue.
I put the wooden skewer across the top of the bottle cap to allow the paint to dry.
Once the egg is dry, put the jump ring through the hole in the top
Then cut ribbon to the length that you would like (mine is around 24 inches) then thread the dragon egg onto until it is centered and tie it to the jump ring.
Then twist the ends together in order to thread the bead onto the necklace.
Then tie a knot at the end of the ribbon and you are done!
