Beaded Curtain – Day #235

Posted on Dec 7, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 5 comments

So you’ve made tons of paper beads because you just can’t stop making them!  What do you do with it?  My answer to this dilemma is to make curtain or a wall hanging.  Here is a beaded curtain idea.  I made them all uniform and coordinated but it does not have to be.  You can string beads at random and put left over beads in between and it will come out like a work of art.


I am still working on creating a studio with paper bead curtains and screens, but time is a luxury………:(

Home-Dec With Paper Beads

Posted on Aug 12, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

We have this boring looking lamp that I got from Ross that is very inexpensive.  We thought to add interest a little drama to a section in your home is decorate it with paper beads.  It is more of a night lamp, not meant for reading, so use a very low watt bulb.  We just used the olive shaped paper beads for this project.


From ordinary to extraordinary!

Paper Bead Mosaic Waste Basket

Posted on Apr 26, 2010 in Paper Bead Creations | 2 comments

This is a nice project for those of you who are not into jewelry making and wondering what to do with all the paper bead tubes you have made.  I took an empty cat litter plastic container and applied the paper beads of varying sizes using a glue gun – what I call paper bead mosaic! I could have used the plastic container like this but it is not pretty.


I have a lot of paper beads that are “rejects”  in the sense that they are not uniform in size.


I did this over two days sitting in front of the tv watching home shopping channel – a good source for inspiration!


I filled the little gaps with little paper beads.


Each side looks different when you apply another color, I have one side redish/pinkish and the other side mostly yellow.



And here is the finished waste basket,  the 8 gallon kitchen bags fits perfectly!


It inspired me to tackle my garden, my herbs needs trimming really bad!


And the roses needed some pruning too.


It ‘s a beautiful day, sun is out, birds are singing….



Why settle for ordinary when you can make it into extraordinary.  Now, I just have a perfect spot for it in my home.
