DIY Upgraded Mardi Gras Beads

Mardi Gras is here and hopefully you'll have some beads left after the party, cause this DIY is super simple and it looks so great. I found some mint green leftovers from last year, and have been wearing it ever since. Mint green is so fresh, and I am sure it will be my go to color this spring,
hopefully they have some at a dollarstore near you.

Like what you see? instructions below :) 


You will need embroidery yarn, wood bead, metal bead, jump ring, scissors.



Have fun with it! ;)
