Kids Bead Crafts

This project uses up beads left over from other projects, and is simple enough that even the youngest children can get great results.

Decorating with Beads

Kids have fun with crafts.
Crafts are fun




Decorating with Beads

  • Look through leftover beads to find an interesting assortment.  If you need more beads, check your local Thrift Store for some old necklaces.
  • Find some items that need to be decorated.  It could be a hand held mirror, a candlestick, a vase, or even a picture frame.
  • Spread white glue on the area to be decorated.
  • Cover the glue with beads and let dry.


  1. Arrange the beads in a pattern based on color or size.


  1. When the glue dries clear, be sure to tap off any loose beads.
  2. Young children can do this project with supervision, but do not leave the items for them to play with.  Small beads may come loose and are not safe for young children.

Note for Parents:

Every parent must use their own judgment in choosing which activities are safe for their own children.  While Creative Kids at Home makes every effort to provide activity ideas that are safe and fun for children it is your responsibility to choose the activities that are safe in your own home.

You will find everything you need (except a pencil and a pair of scissors) to make two completed cranes: you can choose between a lovely metallic gold, a brilliant metallic blue or a white with gold specks. (The metallic paper makes the cranes shimmer in the light.)

Try to find a spot to hang each crane where the light can play with the cut edges of the glass and crystal beads.
