Potato Beads Recipe

Did you know that you can make some awesome beads out of potatoes? That's right...

Things we need:

  • 2 Potatoes
  • pin or wire for making holes
  • knife
  • latex paint

Peel and cut the potatoes into cubes. You can experiment with other designs such as circles with diamond cuts.

Note: Potatoes might shrink during the drying process so you might want to give an allowance on the measurements.

String the potatoes using your wire and let it dry for several days. The drier the better.

When it turns gray and hard, you can paint them over with latex paint and make marble effects and just have fun with them. Your friends will never know those marvelous jewels came from the kitchen ;)
