I’m a child of the 80’s, so whenever my daughter wants to pull out the Shrinky Dinks, I probably get a little too excited. Surely I’m not the only one?
There are so many cute things you can make with Shrinky Dinks, but I pulled out a few supplies I had on hand and we settled on these cute and easy heart and butterfly necklaces.
Paper punches cut right through the Shrinky Dink plastic and give you a perfect shape, which is perfectly awesome. Color your plastic with colored pencils or sharpies, and then if you want to hang your shapes, cut a hole with a hole punch *before* you put in the oven. Follow the directions on the package for baking.
Ta-da! An easy kids DIY craft for a cold weekend afternoon!
Have you ever made Shrinky Dink crafts? I’ve seen more “grown up” jewelry on Pinterest I’d like to try my hand at making.
