Ancient Egypt was my favourite subject at school, and still holds great fascination. If you’re a parent with children studying it, chances are there will be a dress up day at school. Hobbycraft is on hand with a costume solution, so put the toilet paper down and try this for size.

Suitable for : Intermediate
Time to Make : One hour 30 minutes, plus 30 minutes baking for the Fimo

How to Make

Necklace

1. Take half a block of Fimo and soften it up by kneading in your hands.

2. When the Fimo is soft enough to mould, roll it into a thick sausage shape and flatten to desired shape and size.

Top Tip…

Neck Plate

Start by cutting the centre out of a paper plate as well as a segment from the edge of the plate.

Paint your neck plate with a main base colour.

Whilst the neck plate is drying paint your pasta shapes, to do this mix equal parts glue and paint as well as adding a lot of glitter and then stir the pasta in.

When the pasta is completely coated in the paint and glitter mix, place each piece onto a plate or sheet of paper to dry, I also added another shake of glitter to the wet pasta for extra sparkle.

Use a felt tip pen add your detailed decorations to the plate.

When you are happy with the more detailed decorations use glue to add your pasta shapes and beads. Leave the completed neck plate to dry.How to Make an Egyptian Costume, #schoolprojects #Egypt
