Today I want to share something different then my usual jewelry designs, fabric rag beads. These beads are fun to make, and makes unique one of a kind jewelry.
Supply List For Fabric Rag Beads
Diy Fabric Rag Beads
Start off by taking small burlap pieces, thin strips of fabric of your choice, and toothpicks.
Then start wrapping a small burlap piece around a toothpick.
Then tie the thin strips of material around the burlap good and tight. I would tie at least three or four strips to help hold the burlap together.
You could use different colors of strips, or even yarn.
Now take your artistic wire and wrap it around the burlap and give it a twist to tighten.
Now add a seed bead, then weave and wrap the wire through and around the burlap, add another bead and weave and wrap it through burlap again.
Continue weaving and wrapping the beads and wire until you get your desired look.
Be sure to stick the wire through the burlap (weaving) this will help hold the bead together.
