What can you make with a garishly neon, glitter-infused, squooshy silicone pencil grip from the dollar store?
Um, how about these?
Wanna make some? Here's the super simple tutorial!
First, snip your pencil grips into a bunch of little Cheerios. Keep 'em away from kids younger than three, because these things look delicious!
Stuff a cute bead inside a silicone Cheerio. (Choose one about the same size as the hole; if stretched too much, the silicone might eventually split.) Then simply poke a headpin through the whole shebang.
Fold the headpin down tight and snip off any excess. Then turn a loop at the top. (Simple loop instructions here.)
That's it! A cheery silicone Cheerio charm. Make a whole bowlful, and create with wild abandon.
As with real Cheerios, turns out I like pretty much anything stuffed inside a silicone one. But here is my favorite recipe...
I love these so much, I want to marry them. I've owned these delicate shells for ages, but always considered them too fragile for bracelets, which get knocked around a lot.
But with silicone Cheerios, fragile beads now have their own bumpers. If you drop one - it bounces. And that's just plain funny, over and over.
I am easily amused.
