    Believe it or not - necklace made with potatoes!

    My class made them for mother's day- Here's how:

    peel then cut potatoes into small pieces - shaped at triangles, trapezoids etc. cut it a little bigger than needed bec. they will shrink
    place the potatoes on sticks - squersSP and turn every day so they won't get stuck on the sticks.
    dry the potatoes for a few days until hard - thay will look gross!!! black!
    paint in a shade of turquoise
    dot with black paint on the edges to make a "fake turquoise" look
    thread them on elastic cord. each student had 7 potaotes and 10 "silver" balls to intermingle betw. the potatoes.
    tie a knot
    My mother's loved them!!!!!!!!!!!
