Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom

  • carrots
  • heavy duty needle
  • dental floss

Carrot Necklaces

  1. Wash the carrots, and cut them into 1/4-inch round slices.
  2. Thread a heavy duty needle with dental floss, and slip the slices onto the floss by pushing the needle through the core.
  3. Once you've strung enough carrots, tie the ends together to form a necklace.
  4. Lay it on paper in a dark, well-ventilated place, making sure the slices don't touch each other. As they dry, they turn into wrinkled beads. Drying takes a couple weeks.
