Warning: sense of humour required… this project is definitely very SILLY, probably dumbest things I’ve made!
But you know what, your kids will probably love it!
So, never dismiss a silly idea… if it puts a smile on someone’s face that’s justification enough. I certainly had a lot of fun!
Step by Step Guide
Here’s how to make your own ‘toast connectors’, time to get silly!
Step 1: Cut some thin but stiff wire (jewellery wire or a straightened paper clip) into 60mm lengths using wire cutters.
Step 2: Feed thin sausages of FIMO (a polymer modelling clay) through the holes of some coloured wooden beads.
Step 3: Remove any excess FIMO, leaving the holes in the beads completely filled.
Step 4: Carefully push the wire strips through the centre of each bead.
Step 5: Fill any gaps with more FIMO and smooth with your finger.
Step 6: Bake the beads in the oven to harden the FIMO.
Please note: If you don’t have polymer clay, use an epoxy based glue, or any other glue that you think might work.
Now you can start stacking!
- Colourful beads
- Polymer clay (FIMO) or glue
- Wire (a paper clip would work)
- Wire cutters or pliers with a cutter
Stupid projects with no obvious purpose allow you to exercise your inner child, and that’s never a bad thing!
