“Make Your Own Rosary” Downloadable Beading Tutorial #14491
Whether for yourself or a loved one, a handmade rosary is a wonderful keepsake. I designed this lovely traditional 5 decade rosary to be a fast, fun and simple project to complete geared towards beginner beaders. Instead of using chain and complicated wire wrapping, I opted for a simple bead stringing technique (with a few basic knots) so this project could be easily completed by children and adults with absolutely no prior beading experience. And, this project requires no special tools – all you need is a measuring tape or ruler and sharp pair of scissors (or flush cutters if you have them)! Great project for young Catholics in preparation for their first Communion or Confirmation, as a personalized gift for a loved one, or just for yourself made in your favorite colors. Now you can easily Make Your Own Rosary! Happy beading!

Feedback About Simple Bead Patterns:
"Honestly, I am remedial when it comes to bead weaving but, HANDS DOWN!, this tutorial provided the most clear, easy to read and follow instructions I have ever seen. It makes other bead weaving tutorials that also have a good rep for being "easy to read and follow" pale by comparison. I made my earrings without any coaching whatsoever and I can't wait to do the matching bracelet." - Pam
“I started and I can't believe I'm actually doing it! The instructions are very precise, clear and easy to understand. I am impressed with the overall quality of the instructions. They are very professional while still maintaining that bubbly, friendly atmosphere that I feel when I look at their website." - Alisa
