|Blessings embedded into the beads make these a special craft project!|
I’d recommend writing down the prayers or intentions on a sheet of paper and letting that list accompany your final creation.
That way the recipient will know the contents of their beads. All in all, a meaningful and fun way to use your yupo paper!
Have fun and let me know how they turn out!
Here are some photos of our creations…
|Materials you’ll need: heat gun, sturdy non-melting work surface, needle nosed pliers (I like having 2), scissors, yupo paper, acrylic paint, metal nails or thin rods|
|Our soon-to-be-a mommy Niece Katie Zdybel with a necklace full of blessings from her baby shower.|
|Paint your yupo, dry, then cut into narrow strips. Write your blessings or prayers on the unpainted side of the paper strips|
|wrapping the yupo strips tightly around a wire support rod is key|
