These are some easy zipper pulls made with dollar store letter beads, craft beads, wool and embroidery floss!
Easy to make, effective and you could customize them with names.
What you will need:
Wool, embroidery floss (or cord), lanyard hooks, small separating rings, 1/4"wooden letter beads(from the $ store), crochet hook 1.75 mm (US 4) and craft beads (big enough to fit a small crochet hook into them)
How to make them:
1) Cut out a 24" length of wool or embroidery floss and fold it in half
2) Tie the floss to a separating ring or a clasp using a slip knot.
3) Add a bead using your crochet hook to thread the floss through it, hook through your bead first and then hook the floss to thread.
4) Alternate with small beads and then letter beads until the word you want to say is spelled out, tie off the end and let the floss fray a bit if you like the look of it.
It looks very nice on the pocket of my new computer bag!
Add a zipper pull to a pencil case!
There appeared to be some vowels missing in the dollar store pack of letters, however I was able to make all of the above zipper pulls with one package.
Try this easy project and enjoy!
