Hello! My name is Zizi and I'm 10 years old.
I love making decorations for my hearing aids.
Here I am going to teach you how to make your own decorations!

I will teach you to make dangling charm decorations, and also twisty decorations that go around the tubes.
Also, I will tell you how I use beads and stickers to decorate my aids.

Some of the decorations are easy to make, but some are difficult and you will need a grown-up to help you.

My mum and dad help me make my decorations for my hearing aids.

Glitter twists - tutorial

I have not written for a while because of the school holiday.
Yesterday I made some new twists with Fimo and glitter. They look really nice and I am wearing them to school today.
This is what they look like:

They go really well with my glittery moulds.

To make them you have to make twists. First, you make two long sticks of Fimo, rolling the fimo with your hands like this,

This is what the sticks should look like:

They have to be nice and even. Then you twist them around a crochet hook, like this,

and you can squeeze them together,

or leave them more separated:

Sometimes I like to roll them on the crochet stick, so they get a flat surface, instead of a round surface:

Then you bake them in the oven, following the instructions on the Fimo packet.

When they are out and cool, you paint them with Fimo varnish,

and whilst the varnish is still wet you shake glitter on top of it,

You have to wait overnight for them to dry, and then you can wear them!
