Making Paper Beads is one of those fun crafts we did when I was a kid. It was one of our go-to projects that was perfect for teenager birthday parties or just a rainy afternoon.


The cool thing about this craft is that you only need basic materials which you probably already have such as old magazines, construction paper, matches, some Tacky Glue and a Sealer such as Mod Podge.

WHAT ARE PAPER BEADS?


Basically, paper beads are exactly what it sounds like. They are beads that are made out of strips of paper. The paper is cut into a template and then rolled around a match.


Once the match is removed, you are left with a hole running through the center of the bead for the string.

SUPPLIES:


  • Old Magazines or Construction Paper
  • Tacky Glue
  • Mod Podge
  • Pen or Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Matches
  • Jewelry Cording or Yarn
  • Darning Needle
CUT THE PAPER INTO TRIANGLES
ROLL THE PAPERS ONTO THE MATCHES AND GLUE
SEAL THE BEADS WITH MOD PODGE
STRING THE BEADS USING THE DARNING NEEDLE AND CORDING


Paper beads make fun and colorful bracelets, necklaces and earrings. This is a great craft project for kids birthday parties!
