Magic Bean Necklace: Once Upon a Time!

 Magic Bean Necklace: Once Upon a Time!
We loved watching Once Upon a Time!
Can't wait for the next season!
My 5 year old had a craft idea he pitched to me after watching an episode...
"Let's make a magic bean necklace--we could use hot glue!"

 Just like the magic bean that Baelfire got to jump to a realm with no magic.
 And Hook had one...lost his hand for it.

 Plus Tony/Tiny the giant...His dying brother gave
 him the last sprout in a bottle with a cork.
 So we combined the bean and the jar.
I used a silicone mat and hot glue...just squeezed the glue out in the shape of a bean.
 Let them dry...yes, I made tons!
 I used this cork bottle from Oriental Trading.
I've used them for Doctor Who Tardis necklace and Mini Terrariums.
 Just shoved the magic bean inside...
Corked it and added a chain!
 He was thrilled!  He loved to see his handy work come to life!
 Ready for portal jumping!
 Oh yeah...and anyone ever played Knights of the Old Republic???
It's my favorite video game ever!  You can get it on ipad now too!!!  Yay!

Haha great idea! But me trying to do this was frustrating only because i could not make the PERFECT bean! I also had a little trouble only because I didn't have a silicone mat, but found that wax paper works as well. So I used up so much glue until I could get the Top 8 beans, but it was a successful DIY experience and I know the person I'm giving it to will love it :).
