When my daughters were school age they were into making their own jewelry. One of the neatest projects they came up with was this bracelet made from the sheets of foam. They took a paper punch and punched out circles from the rainbow colors of the foam. They they strung them and added beads and a closure.
This technique could be adapted to the other cool punches out there, not to mention the variety of beads to choose from now! A great idea for kids and adults! Birthday gifts, birthday parties, Vacation Bible School, Camp Fire/Girl Scouts, organizations, etc!

Instead of glass fusion which is expensive and dangerous for wee ones, this is a fun, safe and easy substitute. Different shapes and colors of craft foam are layered to make pendants
Approximate Time: 20 minutes
- craft foam
- craft glue
- paper punch
- craft cord or chain
- Cut out different colors and shapes from the craft foam, sizes suitable to be used in a pendent.
- Lay several layers of foam on each other till you like the effect.
- Using craft glue, glue pieces in place.
- Let dry.
- Punch a hole near the top.
- Using plastic canvas cord, jewelry cord, or a chain, 18-24 inches long, string pendant and tie the loose cord ends.
