Beaded Glass Taper Holders
These taper holders ended up being pretty simple to put together. I used a piece of stem wire- 18 gauge (pack of 20 at Jo-Ann's was about $2), wrapped it around the taper holder, and used needle nose pliers to curl the ends up a bit. I then used thin wire to add the beads to the stem wire. These particular flower beads I found at Jo-Ann's also for about $4 for a pack that had 192 in it- this included those pretty green leaves too. They had several colors. I used a seed bead threaded onto a loop of wire to hold the flower bead on to the wire (also made a pretty center for the flower too. :) This will be our MOPS craft tomorrow, hopefully the ladies will like it. I hope you found some ideas to play with for yourself.
