Don't you just love it when you decide to make a pin off of Pinterest, and it ACTUALLY turns out? I don't know bout you all, but it seriously makes me feel like I have my life together.
I ran across THIS PIN some time ago, and decided to give it a go. Only, I was too lazy to go to the craft store to buy the required materials, thus mine turned out a little different:
I pretty much followed the directions, only I substituted brown thread and hemp for the leather and fishing line.
I also just used bugle beads instead of the big fancy beads because... again... I'm lazy. And I already had all these things, so that counts for something, right? Using up materials? So they don't go to waste? Yeah, that's it....
I thought about making an actual pattern with the colors of the beads, but I kind of like how the random colors worked out. My whole policy with making this was "whatever color I pick up, I put on," which actually made life a little easier. Heeeeh.
Overall, this was a really easy project! I haven't made any beaded things like this in a while, so it was quite fun to get back into it, even if it was just for one project. When I was a kid I was ALL about making beaded things. I mean, ALL. So I def recommend checking out the directions if you would like to make your own!!
