Step by Step Directions to Make a DIY Marble Mesh Fidget Toy
First, decide how long you want your mesh toy to be. I like to make mine about 3 inches long and one inch wide.
Cut out a rectangle from the mesh fabric that is 6 inches long and 2 inches wide.
Fold the mesh fabric in half and glue the long side of the mesh together with a hot glue gun.
Let dry, then flip the mesh inside out.
Slip the marble into the opening of the mesh bag. Seal the end shut with hot glue.
Let the glue fully dry before allowing children to play with the marble mesh fidget.
And that is it, your DIY mesh fidget is done!
Experiment with different color combos of marbles and mesh and make one for all your friends, too!
