Step 1: Gather supplies
black acrylic paint
small lid, we used the top from a nail polish remover bottle
metal altoids container
small paint brushes
Step 2: Polymer clay
Roll it into a ball.
Press it flat with the altoids container and use the small lid to cut it into a small disk.
Take a second piece of clay to make the bead. Roll it into a cylinder.
Use the toothpick to put a hole in the top of the disk and through the cylinder. This will be so that you can put it on the twine later.
Step 3: Add your Chinese zodiac sign
Follow the directions on the clay package to harden the clay in the oven.
