This is truly "thrifty and creative!"
I found this great project on Thrifty Fun!
It is directions on how to make a necklace out of POTATOES! A Potato BEAD necklace! Very easy and sounds like great fun! I am going to try this with my students! They love to make jewelry....hey, handmade gift from students to their mommies for the Holidays! Yeah! I am going to do this! You can paint them and everything when they are dry!
