The last DIY that appeared on this blog, was over three months ago. I think a new one might be in order by now! With these longer days, I feel more like actually doing things, opposed to those days in winter, that are mostly spend in couch potato mode. So prepare for more DIY posts! I love sending and receiving mail. The newest ones get displayed somewhere around the house, and I thought it was time for a little project involving mail.
What I've used:
- 40 wooden beads (1 centimeter)
- 4 wooden clothes pins
- 75 centimeters of baker's twine
Start with laying out your beads and clothespins, to see how they'll end up (especially if you are using beads in different sizes or different colours). I decided they worked best for me with 5 beads, a clothespin, 10 beads, a clothespin, 10 beads, a clothespin, 10 beads, a clothespin and ending with 5 beads again.
Make a loop by making a double knot on one end of the twine, as pictured
Start beading away!
The edge of the twine can be hidden in the first bead
End the same way you started, by making a loop
I was on a roll, and made a couple of these puppies. Have you made something cool lately? Please feel free to share a link in the comments below. More DIY's can be found over here.
