DIY: How to make Sand Beads.


Hello ladies, it's another Friday and yea!!! Thank God it's Friday! Owambe Saturday is here so I am sharing a DIY on how you can make stylish beads from sand.

Ever heard of making beads from sand? I hadn't either until I was researching for this blog and came across this wonderful idea. In just a few simple steps you can make your own beads using sand, so be sure to have plenty of white glue on hand!


You'll Need:

Clean sand, White Glue, A plastic spoon and bowl, Toothpicks, skewers, nails, Markers or paintString, elastic cord or plastic lanyard cord

How?

Step 1: Mix together 1 cup sand with 1/4 cup white glue. Mix well to make a stiff dough. If the dough seems too dry, or seems to fall apart easily, add a bit more glue.


Step 2: Shape beads, poke a hole in the center of each with a toothpick, skewer or nail, and set aside to dry for at least 24 hours.

Step 3: After beads are totally dry and hard, you can color them with markers. Just don't use your best markers, as the roughness of the beads is hard on markers. Permanent markers actually work the best, though certainly are not suitable for young children!


Step 4: Now you can string your beads! You can use elastic cord, plastic lanyard cord or even string. If you like you can combine the beads you've made with other smaller wooden or glass beads for a very finished look.


Tips:•Make sure the holes you make are big enough for the cord or string you plan to use! Once the beads have dried they are quite hard, and enlarging holes afterwards may not only be very difficult, but may cause beads to crack or chip.•Beads can be made in many shapes and sizes, take the time to experiment.
