Additional Materials
Beading needle Purchased beads or jewelry findings of your choice (make sure the center holes of your beads are large enough for the needle and glitterspun to pass through.) Note: You may, if you wish, simply trim the yarn to a tapered point, then brush nail polish on it. When dry, it will be stiff enough to thread through the beads and you won't need the beading needle!
Visit the bead section of your local craft store and see what they have!


Cut a piece of yarn to the length of the book you will be using it on plus 6 inches (15 cm).

For our textbooks, this was 18 inches (46); for paperbacks, 12 inches (30 cm) is plenty!

Thread the yarn through the beading needle.

Because it can be flattened, it is easier to use than many yarns.

At the end, tie the yarn securely in a knot so the beads cannot come off.

You can put a dab of glue on it to make sure the knot does not come out.

Tie another knot above the beads so they don't slide around.

You can also secure the yarn by using the type of crimp fittings that are used in making beaded necklaces to hold the yarn.

Every effort has been made to have the knitting and crochet instructions accurate and complete. We cannot be responsible for variance of individual knitters and crocheters, human errors, or typographical mistakes.
