Thanks to Zoe over at Captain Crafty, you and the kids now have a fun craft to keep busy on rainy days. These recycled necklaces made from old washers and yarn are super easy to make and are a blast to paint and decorate.

Pro tip: Make sure to crack a window open a little when using the nail polish to paint—the smell can get a bit overwhelming for your little ones!

What you’ll need:

  • Old washer rings
  • Nail polish
  • Yarn
