Pumpkin Necklaces

In preparation for our pumpkin patch visit we made everyone in our party a pumpkin necklace. There are several pictures of us sporting them in my earlier post at Yahoo Farms. Here is our process in case you want to make some for your own pumpkin adventures.

We used those tiny Fun Fushion fuse beads. I helped the kids design the black faces in the middle of each grid and then they did the rest. They are learning about patterns in school so they had fun making patterns around the edges and filling in the rest of the pumpkins with orange beads.

When the grids are done, you iron the whole thing and it melts together. I used tiny o rings to hang them on plastic cording and then we used big wooden beads to complete our creations.
