An easy and stylish way to help you remember something you need to do or something you shouldn't forget.
DIY Message Beads
You'll need wooden beads, spray paint, sand paper, twine, and a clothes pin.
The beads used here had a predrilled hole on one side. Using toothpicks and a piece of foam, give the wooden beads a coat of paint.
Once the paint has dried, carefully drill a hole on the other side of the bead.
Give another quick coat of paint to the under side of the beads. Once they'e dry, sand them to give the beads a distressed look.
Using a piece of wire, thread the twine through and insert into the hole of the beads, stringing them together. Once you get a good length of beads, create a loop that is big enough to fit over a door knob. Insert the twine through the metal spring of the clothes pin and thread back through the lower portion of beads.
When you get to the end, don't cut anything just yet. Using thicker twine, cut a large group of strands all the same length. Using the twine that is outside the beads, tie them around the middle of the larger twine bundle.
Fold the larger twine in half and using the thinner twine, wrap around the folded larger twine to create a tassel. Tie off with a couple of knots.
These are perfect for a stylish way to leave messages or make reminders for yourself and your loved ones. They also make the perfect gift. You can opt to not add the clothes pin and use them in your decor.
