Supplies NeededPlain Metallic Foil effect Gift Wrapping Paper
4mm and 6mm Round Glass Pearl Beads in Assorted Silver and Gold Colours
Your choice of coloured thread.
Step by Step InstructionsCut foil paper into two different size squares, one 10.10 cms or 4 inches, the other 6.6 cms or 2.5 inches,
With one square of paper at a time hold in the center and fan fold making the folds as small as possible.
Using a thread colour to match the paper tie the folded fan in the center to secure. Fold all the remaining squares of paper in the same way. Folding/creasing the paper will leave a strong fold/crease mark therefore it is better to complete the exercise with patience.
Secure two or more of the folded same size squares together to form what looks like a flower shape.
Take the desired length of thread and attach one of the larger flower shapes you have made to one end using cellotape.
Then a little further along the thread secure one of your beads using a knot to hold the bead in place.
Now a little further along secure one of the smaller squares made into flowers again using the cellotape.
Repeat all along the thread until you have the desired length of wall hanging.
