Bead a Bug Kit

Beadwork is an ancient art form. And like so many art forms, the designs in this bead set take their inspiration from nature. The attractive clear case contains enough supplies to make four beautiful beaded bugs: a dragonfly, a ladybug, a bumblebee, and a butterfly. Little pillboxes hold the beads, which are sorted by color; there are blues, yellows, greens, and reds, and a color mix for variety. Illustrated instructions demonstrate two weaving techniques and guide young beaders from the easier dragonfly to the more complicated butterfly design. Once the bugs come into being, kids can use the tools supplied to turn them into pins or a necklace and show off their handiwork.If bugs are your thing, here is a chance to wear one on your sleeve or hand one around your neck. Use your imagination after you've learned the techniques we show you in our easy-to-follow instructions.
