You can make your very own small beaded artificial fruit with seed beads. You can purchase the artificial fruit at any crafts store and they are so much fun to make.
To make the beaded artificial fruit you will need
- Small artificial fruit
- 6mm colored seed beads to match the color of the fruit.
- Tacky glue
You can use this same technique to add sparkle to different shapes such as plastic stars, crosses, balls or hearts. There are many different wood shapes at craft stores that would look very nice covered in beads.
Also, attach a hanging loop to make a shiny Christmas ornament or gift trim. You can hang some from the mantel or even use them on wreaths. You can also attach a name for great place settings.
With all the many different colored seed beads now you could make just about anything. I know that you have seen the artificial beaded fruit for sale on the internet or in fancy gift stores. They are very expensive and you can just make them yourself.
