It’s that time of year again when you might be thinking about Christmas gifts and handmade ones can be great. In ‘Christmas at Rum Cove‘, Chloe finds herself at a Christmas Craft Fair and is amazed at the homemade gifts, some jewellery made from paper beads amongst them. How about having a go yourself? They are a great way to recycle old bits of paper. I made some out of pizza delivery leaflets and they turned out great.
You can use any paper. A diamond shape can be folded around a cocktail stick and glued at one end. There are lots of different types of beads you can make and then string together to make lovely, unusual necklaces or bracelets. Beads can be covered in varnish to make them a bit more durable. Why not give it a go?
