I received a promotional copy of this movie. All opinions are my own.
The SMURFS: THE LOST VILLAGE movie comes out today on Blu-Ray and DVD. To celebrate we made super cute Smurfette bead necklaces. They are easy to put together and the girls loved making them. We used clay and formed different shapes of beads. We added some different elements for textures and then let them dry. Once they were done, we strung them on a ribbon to make our necklaces. I love how they turned out and they are something that my kids will wear all the time because they look so nice. See below for our full tutorial on how to make them.

Now to make your fun DIY Smurfette bead necklaces! Your kids will love making these and wearing a necklace just like Smurfette did in the movie. Just take modeling clay, mold it, and then skewer it (to make a hole through the center so you can bead it), and then bake it or let it dry. If you use colored clay, you don’t need to paint it, but you could use white or gray clay and paint it when it is dry. Then thread ribbon or yard through the beads and tie it to make a necklace.
I hope you enjoy making these fun necklaces with your kids and have a “smurfy” movie night! Get your copy of SMURFS: The Lost Village today!
