I love to craft with my daughter, Alexis. She is growing up so fast, and it amazes me how well she puts things together. I think she is very creative. She chose to make domino necklaces for her friends this year, I think they turned out very cute.
She chose her papers first and traced them to fit on both sides of her dominoes. Then she sweet-talked her dad into drilling holes at the top of each domino.
She used mod podge to attach the paper onto the front and back of the dominoes and then coated each with diamond glaze. We were both very disapointed to see how yellow our "non-yellowing" glaze turned out; but the dominoes are very pretty.
We suspended each domino on a toothpick across a little Dixie cup to dry. They take about 24 hours to dry completely.
Tonight Alexis strung the dominoes into necklaces and tomorrow she will give them all away.
