The rosary is a part of my everyday life. And, it feels like I can never have too many rosaries! I while ago I found a tutorial on making paper beads. Since I couldn’t really see myself wearing a paper-bead necklace, I thought this would be perfect for making a rosary.
This project takes some time, but it is a gratifying process, and in the end you will truly have a rosary that you made entire yourself. Also, this may be the absolute cheapest craft that I have ever made. All told the supplies cost maybe 50 cents…if that!
Step 1: Making the paper beads
Supplies: Newspaper torn into 1″ squares (about), Elmer’s glue, stock pot, drill with a 1/4 bit, paint and TIME.
