Hey guys, it's Megan!
I recently made a video showing you a few Art/Craft Projects to try when you’re Bored.
One of the easiest projects I made were these pony bead rings.
First, take some parchment paper and tape it around the part of the straightener that gets hot. This will make sure the beads don’t stick.
Turn the straightener on, and pick out your beads. The number of beads you need depends on your ring size. My ring size is about a 7 - I needed 7 normal sized pony beads.
Put the beads on your straightener in a line,
then close the straightener to melt them.
I checked it a few times to see if the beads were melted enough.
When they were, I carefully removed them from the straightener, and quickly wrapped it around my ring mandrel.
If you don’t have a ring mandrel, try finding a marker or something that’s about the size of your finger.
You might have to hold the ends together for a few seconds until it cools.
These take less than 5 minutes to make, so you can make a whole bunch of them if you want to.
This would be a good "sleepover craft", or just a fun way to pass the time in lockdown!
Let me know in the comments - do you have naturally straight or curly hair?
Mine is naturally curly, but I started straightening it after an unfortunate hair cut in fifth grade. I got sick of fighting it after a few years, and these days my hair is much healthier!
