For the salt dough beads
  • In a small bowl, mix ¼ cup hot water and ½ cup salt together.

  • Add ½ cup flour and mix with your hands. The result should be a ball of soft dough.

  • Roll dough into bead size of choice and poke holes with ends of paintbrushes, chopsticks or straws.

  • Heat oven to 250°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and space out beads on the baking sheet.

  • Bake for 20 minutes, checking periodically (baking time will depend on size). Beads are cooked completely when hardened, but not brown.

  • Let cool. Hand paint and string onto yarn to make jewelry of choice.
