Hello friends I hope you’ve been well.  Is it just me or is time going faster than usual? I can’t believe it’s the middle of May already!!! what?   I’m really enjoying this beautiful weather right now because it’s not too hot or too cold. But I also want summer to come and enjoy some time with the kiddies. Specially our oldest as he’s leaving to university this fall. It makes my heart drop a little each time I think about it…:(
But I’m also so happy that he gets to pursue his dreams of being a vet. :)
cementknottedropepbknockoffcraftberrybush-2Speaking of summer, today is my first summer post as I join my friends in this hop hosted by my sweet friend Krista.  Don’t forget to check out the other summer crafts at the end of this post…:)
My craft today is a knock off of THIS PB knotted rope.  It was so easy to make and though it doesn’t look exactly like the original, I kinda like the irregular surface of the ‘cement’ balls I made.
Here is what you need:

White and black acrylic paint
Scissors
Brush
Rope
Hard bristle brush or toothbrush

beaded rope
1. Make a small ball out of clay
2. Insert brush or dowel to create a hole in the middle of the bead.
3. While still on the brush handle, create texture with a hard bristle brush or toothbrush. (I used my potato brush)
4. Allow beads to dry for 24-48 hours.
5. Mix white and black paint 5:1  . Paint bead with gray
6. Paint bead with black and quickly wipe off with damp cloth.
7. Allow to dry.

And there you go !

You can skip the paint all together and create a white beaded rope. That would look just as pretty…:)

    Love the “concrete” beads, what a creative idea. The earthy, organic, not perfect shape of the beads just adds to their charm. I’m already thinking of possible variations – turquoise with a rusty glaze in the pitted areas, charcoal with white, virtually anything with a “stone” look – the sky’s the limit. Thanks so much for sharing this. Looking forward to future post.
