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.

Crocheted Chic Choker – day 207

Posted on Sep 25, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

This is another version of wired paper bead flower motif in my earlier post.  It is more like a 3D flower because the petals can be adjusted to have it flat or standing up.  The extra small paper beads are so versatile in projects like this, they are easy to manipulate and they can take on any form or shape.

I also made one with a bail using the same beads, you can put it on leather or ribbon, either way it will look pretty!
