Knitting Needles
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Make this gift for a relative who knits or a pal who's just learning. Don't know any knitters? Just trim the sticks to about half size and give them to a longhaired friend as decorative hair chopsticks.

What you'll need

  • Sandpaper
  • Pair of round chopsticks
  • Polymer clay
  • Craft glue

How to make it

  1. Sand the tips of the chopsticks until smooth and rounded, then lightly sand the rest of the chopsticks.

  2. Form the clay into two round beads or into customized shapes, such as stars, birds, pieces of fruit or silly heads. Make an indentation with the flat end of the chopsticks into each bead. Then bake the beads according to the package directions and let cool.

  3. Glue each bead in place on the flat end of a chopstick and let dry. If you're giving them to a knitter, pack them in an unused, Chinese take-out container with a ball of yarn.
