MONDAY DIY! Yarn Beads
This week at Make Messes, we bring you a fun DIY Yarn bead project, make some lovely beads out of some very humble materials! What the finished project will look like:

Here's What You'll Need:
Drinking Straws:

A wooden dowel or skewer - skinny enough that the drinking straw can fit over it.

Yarn! We're partial to the small balls of cotton yarn around here, but you can really use any kind you like.

Scissors! I use my fabric scissors for cutting the yarn and my paper pair for cutting the straws

Glue Applicators (I use the eyeshadow applicators you can get in a pack of twenty or so)

Wow, that's really great. I don't honestly think I would have ever thought of such an idea. Good job!
