Make Mom Jewelry Gift : Necklaces and Bracelets for Mother’s Day

This is a cute idea for kids to make jewelry, such as bracelets and necklaces for Mom, Grandma or an Aunt on Mother’s Day or a birthday. Girls especially seem to love this arts and crafts project because many girls love to sew with needle and thread and they love making and wearing jewelry. Either way, this is a lot of fun.

Make Mom Jewelry Gift : Necklaces and Bracelets for Mother’s Day Crafts Activity for Kids

Crafts Materials Needed:

– Some dried kernels of corn (or acorns)


– A heavy needle

– Some thread

– A thimble (optional, but a good idea to protect your fingers)

– A candle (optional)

– A pin

– Paints, Markers, or Crayons

Step 1:

To make the corn and macaroni necklace pictured at the top of this page, break some macaroni into small pieces, about three-quarters of an inch long.

Step 2:


Color the pieces of macaroni with crayons, markers, or paints.

Step 3:

Pierce each kernel of corn with a pin before stringing, making a tiny hole for the needle and thread to pass through.

Step 4:

Wax your thread by running it against a candle a few times. This will give it strength.

Step 5:

Acorns may be used instead of corn, but do not use berries or any vegetable which may rot instead of getting hard and dry.
