I've been wanting to make some fabric beads for a while -- and happily I made it happen.
I've included the step-by-steps here:
|you'll want to have a piece of foil - strips of fabrics |
anywhere from 1/2" -2" wide by 4" long
some tacky glue; container to mix glue, paint brush, straws
and some hand cream
|mix up some of the glue 1 part glue - 1 part water|
|put a bit of hand cream on for it will keep the glue from overtaking everything|
|brush glue on -- then lay straw as above; fold it over straw to begin|
|roll it up!|
|keep adding more to straw & keep on rolling|
|let dry on straw then slide each bead off|
|decorate as desired|
Hope you can find a use for these fun beads.
or try making them with you kids or grandkids.
