How to Make a Catholic Rosary with Beads #192

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! Thank you for shopping Simple Bead Patterns, and as always, bead happy!

Materials & Quantities Needed

Your purchased beading tutorial will include a detailed materials list of everything you'll need to make this project, including quantities and, in most cases, color information (see more about Bead Color Information below).

Substituting with Different Beads or Beading Materials

Many of our designs can be made using comparable beading materials. For example, if our pattern calls for 4mm round pearls, in most cases, you can use different types of 4mm round beads instead (such as 4mm round fire polished beads). Please note: If the pattern is for a bead weaving (or stitched) project, it's typically not recommended to use different sizes of beads than those recommended, as the original design may not work out as intended. You may also substitute recommended materials with your preferred brand (for example using Nymo vs. FireLine thread) unless otherwise noted for a specific reason. For example, if we specifically recommend using TOHO seed beads with a particular project, the project may not work out as well if you substitute and use Delica seed beads instead (which differ in shape).

Bead Color Information

We provide detailed information about the bead colors used for each of the color samples shown above on the Bead Legend / Color Key (or similarly named page) in your purchased pattern. If the tutorial you purchased does not include detailed color information for a particular color sample we used, we apologize (a few of our earliest patterns did not include this information and we no longer have those beads to reference, or they were discontinued by the manufacturer). If this is the case, please feel free to contact us and we'll do our best to provide you with general color descriptions. Be sure to let us know which particular color sample you're most interested in.
