- lots and lots of beads
- Needle and thread (I couldn’t find my beading needle but a normal small sewing needle worked fine)
- piece of scrap card
- thick card as backing
- decorative papers/bits if you want to embellish further
Cut a shape out 2 of yours shapes, one from the scrap card and one from the backing card. Thread your needle and then start beading by sewing each bead into place. I worked from the centre and then moved outwards, using different size and shape pearls to fill all the gaps. Once finished, if it looks slightly wobbly, cover with some mod podge (which dries clear).
Finish up by using more glue to stick the beaded shape onto your backing card. The decoration is really heavy, so you do need some sturdy backing card. Add your embellishments as required, I put a small label on the ribbon, as you can see from the main picture.
It would also work well with buttons, although I am very precious about my button collection 🙂
