Create a bold statement with DIY beads!
I love the look of a statement necklace, especially one with large eye-catching beads. I always find it difficult to find the right bead, so I decided to create my own! I used felt and beads to create large eye-catching statement beads!

    {Step 1}: Put glue on the back of all your buttons and glue them to your felt (make sure you space them out). Then, put glue on the bottom of one bead and glue it next to your button. You will want to put glue on the bottom and one side of another bead. Glue the side to the side of your other bead. Keep going around your buttons, until you have created a circle.
