I’ve had requests for “beginner” bead projects – simple things that can be accomplished without any beading experience.
This morning, it occurred to me that Make somethin’ Monday is just the place to showcase a basic design.
In my view, the easiest thing to make is a bookmark. All you need are a few beads, maybe a little charm, and some cord that’s narrow enough to fit through the holes.
If you can tie a knot, you can make this. 😀
No pliers, no wire-wrapping, no crimping needed! The beads and the little froggy all stay in place with a just few double knots! Play with different arrangements of your components before you string them to arrive at a design that pleases you most. Then, tie a knot at each end to hold the beads on, and again at the top of each grouping of beads to keep them in place on the string! See? I told ya it was easy! 🙂
With the holidays approaching, you could make a whole bunch of these for gifts – and the best part is you won’t have to worry if they’ll fit the lucky recipient or coordinate with her wardrobe! 😉
If you choose beads and charms in holiday colors and themes, this very simple design could quickly become a sparkling ornament to drape around the branches of a Christmas tree!
Please note! Glass beads and small components of any kind should not be left where small children might have access to them!
