Here’s a bola tie slide that my hubby Patrick made for his Grandpa.
To make this you will need cardboard, a sheet paper of paper, scissors, glue and paint.
1. Cut two pieces of cardboard in a circle that measures 2-1/2 inches across. Glue them together and paint them black (or whatever color you want).
2. Trace or draw your design on a piece of paper. Cut out the pieces and draw them on a separate piece of cardboard.
3. Glue those pieces on top of the circle piece. Let dry and pant black. Add a touch of gold to high light them.
4. Glue the slide on the back of the circle.
We used to use this method to make colorful hair pins, brooches, magnets – you name it!
