    Step 1

    Get all your supplies ready! The paints I bought were purple, pink, yellow, orange and green. Also find a nail, it'll come in handy! Start working the clay so it's soft.

    You'll want to preheat the oven to 275, because you want to bake it for 15-20 minutes; or be safe and make sure that's what the clay you bought says.

    You want to paint one side of the loops, let it dry, and then paint the other side. It took me 2 coats for them. I'd suggest laying them on plastic wrap or something like it because they can stick to cardboard and get pieces stuck on them.

    Now you can use any string you like, I prefer hemp. It's time to tie the loops onto the string. Once that's done, just knot the ends together and you have yummy neckwear! ...please don't eat it though!
