Making your own beads from recycled paper can be tons of fun! Not only are you helping the environment with this green project by using up newspaper and junk mail, but you can create your paper beads in just about any size, shape or color you like.
This cute and colorful bracelet is made from handpainted paper beads, and you can learn to make one just like it with this step-by-step tutorial from Mixed Kreations.
There are no fancy tools or supplies needed to make your own paper beads, just a few simple things:
White glue or Mod Podge
Cookie sheet or flat tray
Optional: Antiquing gel
