Bead and Skewer Maracas for Barbie -Cinco de Mayo

This idea is too easy folks... These bead maracas for Barbie are a cute little prop for Cinco de Mayo pictures and doll play. You can use any bead that resembles a maraca shape, either round or a tear drop type shape. I used large pearl beads and wooden skewers I had in the kitchen for shish-ka-bobs. Then just painted the beads with traditional colors and gave them a shiny coating of clear nail polish. A little dot of two sided tape helps Ken or Barbie hold them.
 Wa-La, the Barbie clan is now ready to join the mariachi band๐Ÿ˜Ž

Skewers and 14mm pearl beads.
I twisted the skewer tightly into the bead hole and then cut it to length for the handle. 
Paint as desired, I made my little green zig-zag with a toothpick.
Beads, skewers and double sided tape can all be found at Dollar Tree.

~Make something just for fun and have a happy day๐Ÿ˜‰
