This bead garland was made from a bag of foam beads used as filler for vases. The bag only cost $2.50 and it comes in lots of different colors. This is a project that your kids could help you with because the foam is really easy to push a needle through. I think they look really cute and I used them in all my garlands this year.
- a bag of filler beads (I got mine at Hobby Lobby in the florist section)
- needle and strong thread ( button or upholstery thread works well)
The beads come in a cellophane bag like the one above. Thread your needle with strong thread and then just push the needle through the beads. Use a slim but sturdy needle or the beads might break apart. That’s all there is to it and it’s fun to do while you sit and watch tv or while riding in a car.
