I've had this project on my to do list for a long time. Well, on my Pinterest board.
I bought the supplies for this forever ago, all at Hobby Lobby. They were pretty cheap since I waited for the beads to be on sale and used a 40% off coupon for the wire. I wish I had been able to find better beads, but I couldn't. I think I saw some I liked better the next time I went in, but I just left it alone.
When I finally sat down to do it, it took maybe five minutes. This is what I ended up with.
I feel so much better after getting something done. I love fast projects that give you results, especially when something else (AHEM, BATHROOM) is dragging on and visible progress is rare. My mom's birthday is Saturday, so I think I'm going to pick up a chain and the rest of the bead colors she needs and make one for her. She has five kids, so hopefully this will work for her.
Do you have any recommendations for fast, easy projects, whether they're house-related or crafty like this? Or any other recommendations on de-stressing when a project is getting under your skin?
