I had an idea for an Ancient Egypt art project today while looking at a pdf file from Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery
. The file titled Egyptian Everyday Life Artefacts
toward the bottom of the page under heading School Loans Service. On page 7 of that file is a picture of an Egyptian Faience Bead Necklace. While looking at it I thought it would be neat to replicate using paper beads. I've never made paper beads, but knew it could be done, and the look of this necklace I think would be perfect to replicate with paper. So I searched for a good site with information on making paper beads and this one
looks good. Time intensive possibly, I'm not sure, but I think dd will enjoy doing this. I just happen to have plenty of paper and mod podge already.
These should turn out quite sturdy. We once did a craft making a rolled up piece of cardstock into a wand using mod podge and they've been played with tons. Ds turned his into a little sword instead of a wand, lol, and it's been banged around by himself and my nephew quite a bit.
