Fabric Rag Bead Tutorial
Materials needed for this project.
artistic wire 24 gauge
thin strips of material
Take your burlap, thin strips of material, and toothpick
and start by wrapping your burlap 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 the desired look.
Be sure to stick the wire through the burlap (weaving) this will help hold the bead together.
Ta Da... How do you like my beads? Check back later to see the necklace that I made using these beads.
