HANDMADE BEADED GARLAND

SUPPLIES NEEDED

One spool of clear fishing wire / line

Large yarn needle

Assorted plastic beads that resemble expensive glass. They can be found at your local craft store in large bags for app.. $5.00. There is about 500 beads in the large bags. They come in assorted sizes also.

DIRECTIONS

Do not unravel the fishing wire! Start by threading the needle with the wire. Your first bead should be fairly large. String beads along the wire, making sure you do not put two of the same together.

One you have achieved the desired length. Carefully tie off the end, tying a large knot. Secure with clear glue - do not use hot glue! Do the same for the end secured to the spool, but pull of some slack first, so your beads do not scatter.

If you would like to give this as a gift, package it in a nice hat box surrounded with colored tissue paper.
