Make Mom Jewelry Gift : Necklaces and Bracelets by Making Paper or Fabric Beads

| More

Did you know that you can make beads out of paper and / or fabric material? Well, you can. This is a great idea for kids to make jewelry, such as bracelets and necklaces for Mom, Grandma or an Aunt on Mother’s Day or a birthday. Girls especially seem to love this arts and crafts project because many girls love to sew with needle and thread and they love making and wearing jewelry. Either way, this is a lot of fun.







Make Mom Jewelry Gift : Necklaces and Bracelets by Making Paper or Fabric Beads

Crafts Materials Needed:

– Some colored fabric material or paper

– A heavy needle

– Some thread

– A thimble (optional, but a good idea to protect your fingers)

– A candle (optional)

– A pin

Step 1:

Cut the piece of fabric material into strips about 6 inches long and 3/4 of an inch wide.

Step 2:


Smear a little paste on the dull side of the strip.

Step 3:

Then roll it tightly like a little bandage.

Step 4:

In the same way, you make a bunch of smaller beads. These are made by merely cutting the strip narrower and shorter. A strip 3 inches long by 1/2 of an inch wide would be a good size.

Step 5:

Then, with needle and thread, string together the larger beads and the smaller ones. The smaller beads should be placed sideways, as shown in the picture.

Step 6:

When the beads are all strung, twist the last two around each other a few times at the back of your neck, and the necklace will stay closed.
