I don't know what possessed me to do this--it took FOREVER.

Wow! That looks fantastic. Great use of the beads.


Did you just glue them together? Or used another method?

Yeah, it's just paper and glue.  Actually, I strung them all on crochet thread and then wrapped that around a bowl in sections, gluing as I went along.  It feels fairly sturdy for what it is, but I'm just using it as a decoration.

I love this.  And it's easy to see how you could use the same method to make a trivet or a box.

That is really well done. What is the bottom like,  did you do a spiral with a length of beeds?

I'm impressed. It looks like one of the bowls from Recycled Planet Store. Very professional!

That's incredible. It looks like something you'd find in a museum giftshop. Great job, what patience!!
After glueing the beads in the bowl, didn't the beads stick to the bowl?

Thanks for all the nice comments!

Yeah, they did stick a little.  I actually wrapped them around the outside of an upside down bowl and tried to just sort of tack them together and reinforced all the seams when I took it off.  I think if I were to try it again, I'd cover the bowl with plastic wrap or something first.

I did as much of a spiral as I could.  It's not solidly covered, but it's not like I'll be putting much of anything in there that could fall through.
