While devouring a can of delicious Almond Roca chocolates, I realized a had an abundance of these pretty little gold wrappers lying and thought I could do something cool with them. I cut a few different sizes and then wrapped them around a toothpick and glued the side in place. I strung all the beads on a wire and bent it so they wouldn't touch so I could seal them with mod podge. I wanted something on the necklace so it wouldn't look so plain so I made a tiny shrinky dink heart and covered it with the wrappers too.

I love the texture that the wrinkled up wrappers create and it is SUPER lightweight. Now I keep looking at all the different foil wrappers and there are tons of colors! Especially around the holidays! What a great excuse to eat lots of candy!  Grin

Hope you guys like it! (I believe I will have to scope out some halloween candy next!)

What a great idea, and it turned out really nice too.  I only ever used to make little men and horses out of metallic sweet wrappers - to amuse the children of course  Tongue  and not to keep.  Your beads are so much prettier.

It's beautiful. Bet it's lightweight too. Any reason to eat chocolate is a good thing...    Wink

I enjoy making my own beads from recycled materials. Also, designing with wire.
