How many times have you hopped out of your car to head into the grocery store, doctor’s office or school and your kiddo doesn’t have their mask in hand? It’s happened too many time for me to count, so I decided to make a mask holder for an easier way to keep tabs on my little’s PPE. Of course I couldn’t just make any pedestrian mask holder, it needed to be cute and personalized. I popped over to my craft store and picked up the supplies for this quick DIY. It’s a little advanced for little kids, but I think it’s a perfect project for kids 7 and up. You’ll probably need to help knotting the fishing line and, of course the parts involving the lighter. But trust me, after making these for your kids, you’ll be running back to the craft store to whip up one for yourself too.

TIE CORD TO LOBSTER CLAW

Tie the long piece of cord to one lobster claw and tie the short piece of cord to the other lobster claw. It’s okay to tie a single basic knot, you will melt the cord slightly to hold cord into place.

CONNECT CORD TO STRUNG LETTER BEADS

Now your short and your long pieces of cord should be tied to lobster claws. Tie the opposite ends to the jump rings on the stung letter beads.

MELT CORD SLIGHTLY

Use a lighter to melt the cord. This step is two-fold, you will stop the ends from fraying and you will melt the knots slightly to hold them in place.
