DIY Prayer Beads
DIY Prayer Beads are so trendy right now and I am loving it! They are so simple to make and they add some much charm to any vignette.
Here’s what you need:
These supplies are from Hobby Lobby.
Supplies: Woodpile Round Bead 3/4″ (2 packages), Woodpile Round Bead 1/2″ (2 packages), Woodpile Wooden Cross 2 3/4 ” x 1/4″, Woodpile Nickel Plated Screw Eyes, Mixed Media Jute Twine, DecoArt Americana Acrylic Paint in White Wash, scissors and a hammer and a nail.
1. Paint a cross white
2. In order to insert the “eye” into the cross, use a hammer to gently tap a small nail into the top center of the cross. You don’t want to split the wood, so just make a small hole, then screw the eye into it.
4. Next string the beads. My pattern was large bead followed by two small beads. Then at the end I finished with an extra large bead at each end. I used a total of forty beads, sixteen of the larger and twenty four of the smaller.
5. I used the two pieces of twine to tie a knot and trimmed it.
I nestled the DIY Prayer Beads into a chic silver bowl I found at Hobby Lobby.
