I have a collection of paper of all kinds because I hate throwing anything out thinking I will be able to recycle them and give it new life. With this in mind, my Paper to Paper Bead Idea # 3 is freezer paper. You come home from the deli one day and you find that cheeses and meat is wrapped in freezer paper. It has such a nice texture to it, not too thick and not too thin. I thought they’re great for painted paper beads, you can use whatever left over nail polish you have which is what I did for this project.
I cut the triangle strips 1/2 inch wide at the base and 22 inches long, of course you can cut it longer or wider at the base for a different look. I then, applied nail polish in green.
Dip it in glitter
Voila! Pair of blingy earrings 🙂
I think they will look like pearls if you were to make it a little rounder and painted with frosted white nail polish.
Any ideas you want to share?
