Kristin at Craft Leftovers posted a great tip about making your own “waxed linen” thread. You can use waxed linen-type thread for a variety of crafting projects, such as book binding, jewelry making, and braiding. It’s also a great tool for kiddos to use in beading because you don’t have to have a needle to easily thread it through beads. Make it in a variety of colors using these [instructions found at Craft Leftovers]

Project Estimate:

  • Embroidery Floss, $.25
  • Candle, $1 or on hand

Total: $.25 and up
