Steps- How to make a Paper Bead Necklace: Autumn crafts for kids
This paper bead necklace is one of the easiest autumn crafts for kids. Watch the video at the top or follow the below steps to learn how to make this DIY necklace.
I chose the fall colours for the papers to make this necklace. Red, yellow and orange. We will see how to make beads out of these papers.
Draw triangles on the papers as shown below. The taller the triangle, the thicker the beads will be.
Cut out the triangles which we drew using a scissors. Now, get a paper straw. Apply glue on each of the triangles and wrap them around the paper straw.
After wrapping the triangles around the paper straw, cut them out using scissors. You will get several paper beads.
Make as many paper beads as you want using different colour papers. Apply glue on the paper beads and dip them in glitter. Now, get some buttons and string the beads and buttons together using a transparent thread. This is a great fine motor activity for the kids.
You can apply some clear nail polish or glossy varnish on the paper beads to make them more glossy and durable. Grown ups can help kids with this step.
