Beaded Oval Frame Fridgie

Image of Beaded Oval Frame Fridgie Designed By Julie A. Bolduc

This beaded frame uses a recycled lid from an oval Crystal Light container and is fast and easy to make. You can use what ever color combination of beads and thread you like for any occasion! This would also make a great Christmas ornament by just switching out the magnetic tape for an ornament hook. (The cat in the picture is my 18pound cat Boggle.)
