A Paper Bead Wreath

Posted on Sep 9, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

When I saw the white paper rope, I thought it would be a nice canvass for the colorful paper beads of different shapes and size.  I love working with wire, twisting and wrapping, just letting your imagination go wild.  I did not have a pattern for this necklace or wreath, I made this with left over paper beads.  I treated the paper rope with Vibrance and it made it more durable and stiff.


I used round small paper beads, olive shape and tiny paper beads – I strung them on a 28 gauge craft wire and just twisted them to form leaves, buds and flowers.


They look pretty as a necklace or even as a crown I would imagine.


You can use a heavier gauge wire like 20 gauge instead of the paper rope.


What a nice way to display those vibrant colorful beads!
