I was in charge of my son's Cub Scout camping trip craft. Since we were going to a camp with a lot of rocks, the theme was "We Will Rock You". The craft I came up with involves river stones, wooden beads, silver wire and beading cord... all "earthy" items you can also find at your local craft store.
Here's what you'll need:
- One small stone. Anything roughly the size of a quarter will work. Buckeyes, arrowheads or shells can also be used.
- 4 to 8 beads. I've used wooden beads for this craft but any will do.
- 32 inches of beading cord. This will be the necklace itself. Nylon and leather work well, but I used cotton for this craft.
- 24 inches of silver wire. The label on mine says "26 gauge copper wire", but it's silver in color and very inexpensive.
