I thought I would do a quick post on a little project I did this week for my 4 year old girl soccer team, the Jaybirds! I made some other soccer projects if you're interested: coach's bag for me, bag for my daughter, shirt sleeve holders, soccer supporter t-shirt, and soccer duffel bag for my son.
I wanted to make something for the girls, something that wouldn't take too long (since there are 6 girls on the team) and wouldn't cost too much. So I thought I would make them soccer ball necklaces made of sculpty clay and ribbon.
I first rolled up balls of aluminum foil then covered them with the sculpty clay. Next I poked a hole with a toothpick. After baking the balls I painted them white, penciled out the design, then used a sharpie marker to color in the shapes.
I clear spray painted all the balls to make them a little more durable (chip proof) and shiny.
I think they turned out really cute! And it only took me a couple hours... not too bad considering the detail involved in the pattern.
Hope you all are staying dry this weekend!
