Beaded Scarf Ends: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 15th Mar 2019

The latest trend, beaded scarves are all the rage. Our simple instructions explain how to add beaded dangles to any thin scarf - once you've got the technique down, you'll be ready to bling up all of your scarves!

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 3 decorative head pins
  • 5 large aluminium flattened ball metal beads
  • 3 x 6mm strong jump rings
  • 1 x 25mm closed ring
  • 1 thin scarf
  • 2 x 15cm 20gauge beading wire


TOOLS REQUIRED

  • 2 x Crimping Pliers
  • Twirly Wirlies
  • Wire Cutters


Pick up a decorative head pin and thread on:

  • a large aluminium flattened ball metal bead


Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the head pin. Twirl the end into a closed loop using your twirly wirlies.

Open up one of the 6mm strong jump rings (as they are quite strong, you will need to use two pairs of pliers) and thread it onto the top loop in the flattened ball head pin. Whilst it is still open, thread it onto the 25mm closed ring and then close securely.


Pick up your scarf and thread the 25mm closed ring with its attachments into the centre. Put aside for now.

Pick up one of the large aluminium flattened ball metal beads and cut out the top "star" of metal. You will need to use strong cutters and be careful of the sharp wire. Take one of the ends of the scarf and fold into a point. Wrap a section of thick wire securely around the point and then pass the wire through the inside of the cut flattened metal bead and out through the hole in the bottom. Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the wire. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Repeat this process with the other end of the scarf.

Pick up another decorative head pin and thread on:

  • a large aluminium flattened ball metal bead


Leaving a space of 10mm, cut the excess off the head pin. Twirl the end using your twirly wirlies. Open up another 6mm strong jump ring and thread it onto the top loop in the flattened ball head pin.Whilst it is still open, thread it onto the bottom loop on one end of the scarf. Close securely. Repeat the process of making the flattened ball head pin, and attach to the other end of the scarf. Your beaded scarf is now ready to wear!
