DIY Paper Beads

Black and white is making a BIG  comeback this season. This is good news for accessories, as they will be the best way to add a pop of color to your outfit. While you’re out spending money on new spring clothes, keep spending! Accessories like this DIY paper bead necklace are very inexpensive, giving you a cheap, handmade, chunky compliment to whatever classical outfit you throw together. Just be sure to use colorful paper like the amazing paint splatter from Wrapped to give you a look that’s messy yet sophisticated.

What you need:

  • Wrapped Paper
  • Mod Podge
  • Ruler to measure beads
  • Scissors to cut out bead shapes
  • String to hang beads from measured to length you desire.

Step one: Measure/trace bead pattern.

My beads are large at 3″ long at the base. The smaller you make your base, the more delicate your beads will be. A simple triangle is your shape.

Step two: Cut out shapes.

Grab a pencil to help you roll up your beads.

Step three: Roll up beads, seal with mod podge, let dry.

Step four: String up your necklace, go be awesome.
