Diamond Beaded Bag
August 26, 2021
I ordered an inexpensive "diamond bead" kit from China and although I didn't much care for the cat design, I figured I could come up with a way to learn how to do the craft and make something other than a picture. I ended up decorating a cute cell phone purse for my grandaughter.
Total Time: 2 hours
- diamond bead kit
- purse or canvas bag
- The pattern is color coded, just like a paint by number kit. I started the project by doing half of the pattern and using one color of beads at a time. Using the first color, pour the beads into the tray. Using the tool, push it into the provided "wax" at the tip of the tool, so that the beads will stick to it. Pick up each bead, one at a time, with the end of the tool and "push" into place on the pattern. Do not pick up on the flat side of the bead. I shook the tray occasionally while doing the "painting" so the beads would change their position and be easier to pick up.
- Continue this process until the entire pattern is complete. It was fun and easy to do.
- When completed, I glued the design with some Dollar Tree liquid adhesive glue to the back of a cell phone purse. Let dry.
