Paper napkin and wooden beads

Materials: NYSNÖ paper napkin

Description: I like to create and at the last visit to IKEA I was impressed with napkins, yes napkins, with beautiful pattern.

I immediately got an idea…

I just used some wooden beads, which I had at home and covered them with napkin. Outlined the beads on a string, with some other wooden beads and here it is – a new unique necklace!
