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!
