Cars 2 Mod Podge Charms

Cars 2 comes out on June 24th and I have 2 very excited kiddles. We found Cars 2 cereal at Target the other day and even though it is just Cheerios with red food coloring my son wanted to eat it for every meal. I was about to throw the box in the recycling pile when I realized that it was covered with the Cars 2 logo. Out came the scissors and the Mod Podge and within a few minutes I had made fun little Cars charms for my 2 oldest munchkins. Here is how easy it is to make them:

Materials needed:
Cars 2 cereal--found at Target
Mod Podge
Craft foam (optional)
necklace bails (optional)

Cut out the Cars 2 logos from the cereal box and glue them to a piece of craft foam if desired.

Using an Exacto knife cut around the logo so the foam isn't showing.

Brush Mod Podge over the logo and let it dry. Apply a second coat and let that dry.
Poke a hole through the top of the charm and insert a bail if you have one.

I let the kids bead a strand of hemp and put the charm in the middle.

Voila! A cool necklace that the kids can wear to the movies.
