earth day air-dry clay necklace

Honor the earth this Earth Day by making these cute medallions to hang or to wear.
Step 1

Scoop out a bit of clay and knead it in your hands until it's warmed up.

Step 2

Lay the clay on your work surface and roll it until it's flat (about 1/8" thick).
TIP: Protect your working surface with wax (or palette) paper.

Step 3

Press a round lid (or cookie cutter) into the clay and remove the excess clay around your circle. Repeat this for additional medallions.

Step 4

Use a straw to cut a hole in the clay at the top of the circle. Let dry according to package directions.

Step 5

Paint your Earth Day designs onto the clay medallion. Let dry.

Step 6
Cut a piece of cord and thread it through the hole in the top of the medallion. Add a few pony beads, then tie a secure knot in the ends of the cord to complete your necklace.
