Supplies needed:

  • 1x Beadable Wire Headband
  • Approximately 30 Acrylic Beads
  • Round Ended Pliers or 1-Step Looper Pliers (we will be using the 1-step looper pliers in this tutorial - you can find these either on Amazon or at your local Michaels)

Step By Step Instructions:

1. Using your pliers, bend a small loop on one end of your wire headband. This will keep your beads from falling off as you slide them on.

2. Slide your acrylic beads on the headband in your preferred order. (Keep in mind that the number of beads you use will vary depending on the sizes you choose!)

3. Using your pliers again, bend the remaining end of the headband to make a small loop.
