You Can Turn White Bread Into Beautiful Jewelry And Art -- Here's How

When you're in the mood to craft, that usually involves a trip to the store to pile up on all the necessary supplies. While we love a nice drive to the hobby shop as much as anyone, this awesome craft only requires a few things you probably already have in your kitchen.

This simple trick turns ordinary white bread into perfect crafting clay...which is way better than letting it sit on your shelf going moldy.

Take six pieces of white bread, cut off the crusts, and place them in a food processor until they're just crumbs.

Then add three tablespoons of white glue, and a few drops of dishwashing soap.

Use soap on your hands to keep the dough from being too sticky as you knead it until it's smooth.

Divide it into smaller balls and add food coloring. Note: they will get darker as they dry.

You can store the dough in your fridge, or you can start creating cute items, like these flowers.

Delicate yellow roses.

Adorable hydrangeas.

Teeny leaves.

And whatever else your heart desires!

Allow them to dry for a full 24 hours.

The options are endless...you can make a beautiful brooch.

Or add a splash of color to an old picture frame.

Just think about the millions of other items you can create from this simple material! Who needs toast when you can have cuteness instead?
