  • Step 1Place a piece of paper into the bottom of your tray.
  • We suggest using a cooking or plastic tray with sides at least 5cm high.
  • Step 3Place small dabs of paint onto your paper inside your tray.
  • Step 4Place your beads into the tray on top of the paint.
  • Step 5Start rolling your beads around the tray by moving the tray from side to side and back and forth.
  • Step 6Continue rolling your beads until you are happy with beads paint coverage.
  • Step 7Thread your beads onto a wooden skewer to dry.
  • We balanced the ends of the skewer on a book so that the beads were held off the ground while they dried.
  • Step 9Thread your beads onto your twine, tie the ends together and your necklace is ready to wear!
