Grandma's upcycled melon seed necklace

One of the things I learned from my grandma: creating a melon seed necklace. It might be one of my first experiences with re/upcycling. In fact, it is a very easy thing to do, with a very nice result, which I like to share with you: 

  1. Buy a Galia melon
  2. Cut it in pieces 
  3. Remove the seeds
  4. Wash them in water
  5. Dry the melon seeds on a paper towel
  6. Use thread and a needle to tack them up to a beautiful natural necklace.
  7. Enjoy! (and don't forget to eat your melon)
Note: add some other natural colored beats, if one melon doesn't give you enough seeds for a long necklace!
