Paint your wooden beads on your own

The appeal of contemporary wooden beads might dose off when you set sight onto their plain appearance. I understand that there are many colored ones available too, but many of us seem to not find the right appeal in them.

Wooden beads are one of the fundamental components for many handcrafted jewelry projects. There are limitations in terms of their colors & patterns, which is why I present you a basic guide of painting them according to your style, so that you do not feel the need to abide with the rules.

Painting your wooden beads is also meant as keeping them good for long. Their surfaces would not fall dull or shy of appearance, and you could always use color patterns for decoration. You can even make custom ones for a special project or holiday season.

First of all, make sure you have check listed the following supplies:

  • Wooden beads
  • Wooden dowel
  • Board
  • Spray paint
  • Tray
  • Craft colors
  • Screw
  • Old piece of newspaper
  • Brush
  • Sheet of foam – 1’x6”
  • Toothpicks

Step 1: Spray paint

Arrange your wooden beads on a tray in an area where passage of air is good. Spread them out so they do not come in contact with each other and hide each other’s surfaces at corners.

Shake your spray paint can well and spray paint in a back-and-forth direction at a minimum distance of 6”.

Spare 10 minutes to let them dry and then turn the uncolored sides up. Spray paint them 6” apart.

Step 2: Dowel paint

Get your board and attach your dowel vertically onto it. The height must not cross 6”. You need to use dowels which have a diameter smaller than your wooden beads.

String your beads onto the dowel, one at a time.

Use your left hand to hold the bead from the top while you use your right hand to paint it. Take your brush and craft paints to paint it nicely. If you can think of custom patterns then make sure your darkest shade is your first coating.

Turn around the bead and keep painting the left out sides. Take a moment about 15 minutes to let your wooden beads dry up. Take them out, afterwards.

Now, your beads are semi-painted, you need to paint inside. Spread them on a newspaper and start painting inside. Take 15 minutes, as usual to let the paint dry up.

Now, again on your dowel, put your bead and put your left hand’s index finger on top and tight, so that you could paint various details on the surface with your other hand.

Step 3: Use toothpicks and foam

Lay a sheet of foam on your surface of work. Your foam has to be large enough to accommodate 20 wooden beads.

Pin toothpicks into the surface of your sheet. Keep distance in between them, so that your beads do not come in contact with each other.

Put a bead on every toothpick you skewered on the sheet. Then, paint each using your brush and paints and paint in any way you desire.

You are done! How charming do they look now? Try them in a jewelry project. Happy to have helped you with your wooden beads!

How to make a napkin ring using wholesale beads?

Hello, friends! It is about time that we admit that getting crafty has rewarded us a creative potential that we can unleash in handcrafting various beautiful projects. Today I am going to present you a step-by-step guide on utilizing wholesale beads to make a napkin ring.

It is as easy as it sounds like, and you require the usual materials and some time off your busy schedule. Just think how you could present them in this year’s Thanksgiving Day in November.

So now, let us begin… First and foremost, make sure you have the following supplies ready at hand:

  • Memory Wire bracelets – Gold; each one would make two napkin rings, so feel free to have any number you want
  • Looping pliers
  • Assorted wholesale beads – you could use gold/orange/brown or loose beige wholesale beads
  • Wire shears
  • Green Leaf beads
  • Jump rings – gold, 10mm

Well, I could tell if you have started getting all worried about a memory wire, but the good news is that you could still use any golden wire that is 18-22 gauges if you are short of memory wires. I just used one because I had it already.

Get started using your memory wire shears and cut your coils. For every ring you make, you require exactly 2 loops. Afterwards, you need to keep the wire separate and cut it using wire cutters. Just do not use your regular scissors because it would ruin the scissors blade. Trust me, I have been there and done that; the wire is too strong.

Now grab your looping pliers and make a tiny loop at one of the finishing points of your memory wire or any wire you use. This way, you will prevent your wholesale beads from falling off to the ground. You now also have a good place to hang dangles.

Now the part we all crave for – stringing our beads. It is as amazing as it gets with time how you become so fond of stringing your wholesale beads. The best part is that this is the part where you get all creative and energetic, so enjoy while it lasts.

Anyway, go for a random pattern of stringing around 3 to 5 beads. Then, string 2 green leaf beads. You could make a pattern out of it, but it’s also good to remain undecided. How about getting your little girls to help? In fact, I prefer you could really use the idea. Even if you do not have kids, let your aunt or any kids to do so.

Now that stringing beads is all done, time to make one more loop at the end that is free. In order to form a dangle, simply string 3 to 5 leaf beads over a jump ring. Followed by, thread the jump ring into a loop and close the opening.

That’s it! Quite simple, isn’t it? Look at just what you made. Great job!

I will be back with more crafty tutorials, so stay tuned.
