Okay, I’m a little more than envious of those who are planning to go to Bead & Button this year for the shopping, classes and did I mention the bead shopping? But I’m not planning on sitting around wishing I was there, nope. I’m gathering together a few beading buddies for a Bead Soup party. You might want to throw a little beady soiree of your own. Here are the basics:
How to Throw a Bead Soup Party
1. Invite a few of your Beady Friends.
2. Each person needs to bring a strand of beads to share. (You can suggest a color scheme.)
All guest will also need to bring:
crimping pliers and wire cutters
3. When everyone arrives, dump the strands of beads into a large bowl. Divide the beads up randomly among your group.
4. String a memory necklace or bracelet using your bead soup.
*provide chocolate for best results!
Pictured above is a work in progress that I started at our last Bead Soup party. We went with a silver/grey/purple color scheme. You can use evite.com
for simple online invitations. Don’t have any beady friends? Invite a few gals over and teach them how to string!
Have any ideas for a bead party that you’d like to share? I’d love to hear them.
