I saw this cute tutorial on Handmade Charlotte and it brought back a flood of memories of when I was a little girl making craft bracelets. Well, this is an update of what we used to do back in the day with some awesome new Mod Podge products. Follow along Rachel Faucett's tutorial as she lays everything out so clearly.

Tools and Supplies:
Mod Podge Mod Melts (in any color of your choosing)
Mod Podge Mod Melter
One or more Mod Podge Mod Moulds
Wooden beads (an assortment of sizes and colors)
With your Mod Melter, fill your mould starting from the center and working your way out. Let cool for 10 minutes or until firm.
Attach a pony bead to the back of the Mod Melt charm while it’s still in the mould.
Once the bead is firmly in place, pop the charm out of the mould.
Next, select a variety of wooden beads to decorate. We chose to keep some of the wooden beads solid colored, while others, we added playful patterns to- you can add dots, lines, even arrows!
Measure your string and cut at desired length for the necklace. To create the tassel, wrap the string around your fingers several times and cut once you’ve achieved your desired thickness. Maintaining the overall shape of the loop, take string of the same color (or a coordinating one) and tie it around one end, leaving enough of the loop exposed to thread your necklace string through. Once you’ve wrapped your coordinating string around several times and secured it, clip the other end of the loop to free the tassel.
Lace the necklace string through the top of your tassel and then, crossing strings, thread through the back of your Mod Melt charm. Finally, add your painted wooden beads and tie at the end.
