While my sister was here visiting from California this summer, she taught us how to make paper beads. It's a quick and easy craft that you can do with your kiddos. So today I'm going to show you how.
It's a very simple process.
2. Cut the pages into long triangular strips. (If you are doing this craft with the kiddos, this step should be done by you or another grown-up.)
3. Take a lolly-pop stick or other thin round object and wrap the paper around it starting at the wide end and working your way to the thin end.
4. Take a dab of glue and use it to hold the wrapped paper together at the end.
Repeat this process until you have as many beads as you need to make a bracelet, necklace or whatever you want (they'd look cute on a DIY chandelier or as fringe on a lamp etc.)
I strung these beads to make a necklace for the Princess.
Of course, I had to try it on first. Lol!
Now go make yourself some pretty paper beads! And let me know what you do with them. ;-)
Have a great day!
