DIY Fabric Beads
April 18, 2014
I’ve been making so many bracelets and came up with these absolutely fun bracelets! They are perfect to add to those awesome Spring arm parties and I just love them. You can use the beads for a necklace, bracelet or anything you want to! Ok, I can’t wait, here’s the DIY!
What you need:
Embroidery floss, I used 5 colors, but you can use as many as you would like
Thin jewelry wire
Something to wrap the wire around, I used a nail polish brush
Cut strands of each color embroidery floss the same length.
Each embroidery strand has 6 smaller strands making it up. Separate them and put one of each color together.
Make a hook with the wire. Tie one end of the strands to the wire.
Tightly wrap the strands around the wire.
To finish it off, separate the strands into two sections and tie a knot around the wire.
Cut the excess string and wire. Create another hook and crimp to finish off.
Wrap the wire around the round object you picked. Pick something smaller so the bead doesn’t end up too large.
Push the edges into the opening and crimp to finish off the bead. Now you can make as many as you like!
I ended up using the beads I made to make a few bracelets and I love them!
Hope you girls enjoy and make tons of fabric beads! Make sure to share them with me on Facebook
