Fun Kids’ Craft: How to Make Bead Insects

>>How to make beaded insects [music]>>This tutorial will show you step-by-step
how to make these beaded insects, which look great hanging from a window where they can
sparkle in the light. They’ll also make lovely necklaces as gifts
for your friends. You will need craft wire, ribbon in colours
of your choice, mixed colour beads, including black and white ones. Step One Unspool about 12 inches or 30 cm of craft
wire. Thread a few black beads and then a white
one onto the wire to make the body. You can make the body as long or short as
you like depending on how many beads you use. Step two Bend the wire and thread it back through the
top three beads and then out to the side. Leave a small loop at the top. Step Three Thread the wire at the bottom through the
second-to-last bead and out to the left side. Thread beads onto the wire on the right to
make a wing. Step Four Twist the wing so that it stays in place. Repeat this for the bottom wing to complete
the first side. Step Five Do the same thing on the other side of the
butterfly. Try to bend all four wings so they are similar
in shape and size. Step Six Twist the wires around the body a few times
to keep the beads in place. Trim any excess wire with scissors. To finish, string a length of ribbon through
the loop at the top and hang it in a sunny spot, or give to a friend as a gift. [music]
