To make them into pins simply hot glue (an adult job) a pin back onto the finished project or if you are able to wire the pin back into the project it’s even better. For a pendant you need to create a wire or pipe cleaner loop so that it can be put onto a chain, ribbon or other necklace material. If you want a ring you’ll need to have enough wire or pipe cleaner to wrap from the back of the project to form the ring. Using wire or pipe cleaner makes the ring easily adjustable. We preferred the colored and coated jewelry wire that comes in a variety of gauges. For the most part we used our fingers to manipulate the wire, but you can also introduce jewelry tools which are small and easy for little hands.
Have fun creating some great projects that are especially good on a rainy day!
