Magazine Beads



Old magazines and catalogs




Paint brush

Juice box straw or coffee stirrer


Squirt a little glue into a cup and stir in a small amount of water. Cut a lot of long triangles out of a page from a magazine or catalog. One triangle will make one bead. To make a necklace, you will need about 20 beads.

Lay a triangle with the side that you don't want to show facing up. Brush a small amount of the glue/water mixture onto the triangle. Take the straw or the stirrer and roll the wide end of the triangle around it. Continue rolling until you reach the point of the triangle. Slide the bead off the straw. Make more beads the same way. Let the beads dry for about one hour.

String the beads together. Tie each end of the string in a double know and then tie the necklace around your neck.
