Let’s get crafting! You only need a few items and to follow a few steps – such a great last-minute gift idea (that’s still thoughtful and useful)!

Materials You’ll Need for the DIY Appetizer Skewers:

  • Turkey lacers (these are the skewers – I used ones that are about 6-8 inches long, but you can find longer ones if you want to make longer skewers). 
  • Assortment of beads (I got all of mine at Hobby Lobby – just MAKE SURE you get beads that have larger holes so they fit on the skewers)
  • Soft earring backs (these serve as the stopper that hold the beads in place on the skewer)

 

Step 1: Set out the beads you want to use

When I was planning this project, I knew I wanted to make my skewers Christmas-themed, so I picked out some strands of beads from Hobby Lobby that fit the look I was going for.

You could make these in so many different styles, but I wanted to do something a little fancier and glitzier, so I chose beads with more sparkle. I also just dug around in the bead collection I already have and pulled some things from there. 

Tip: MAKE SURE that when you’re picking out the beads, you choose beads that have holes large enough for the bead to easily slide onto the skewer.

Step 2: Assemble beads onto skewers

I just played around with the arrangement I wanted to follow for the skewers. As you can tell, I didn’t make all of them completely uniform, but they do all coordinate with each other. I wanted to do a mixture of colors and bead sizes on each one. Just play around until you figure out what arrangement you want to do and then start placing the beads on the skewer.

Step 3: Place earring back tightly against beads

You can just slide the earring back onto the skewer and put it snugly against the last bead, that way it holds the beads in place.

So easy! And I love that this is glue-free – makes it super easy to remove the beads from the skewer if you need to do a deep clean (like if food got in between the beads when you were using the skewers), and it also makes them easy to change out if you decide you don’t like that style anymore! 🙂 Plus, makes them just soooo easy to make!

    1. Amazon! But I actually think I just bought mine at the grocery store. I think it was super cheap to buy a couple of packages that each had 8 in them.
