One reason I love the holidays is because I (sometimes) get downtime. I don’t do anything crazy with it, but I like to read when I’m able to.
Recently, I’ve started reading physical books instead of using my Kindle. Don’t get me wrong, an e-reader is great, but when you spend 10 hours a day looking at a screen you might want to give your eyeballs a break. I’m in that camp right now. Because I haven’t read a physical book in a while I didn’t have any bookmarks so, of course, I made some.
What’s great about these DIY bookmarks is that you can make them quickly and it’s a fun project to do with the little ones. Just make sure they don’t eat the beads.

Step 1: add your beads to the rope
When you choose a sequence of beads your like, slide the onto the rope or jute and tie a knot at the end.
You might also want to tie another knot above the beads to make sure they don’t slide around. I ended up adding one after making these.
Step 2: add beads to the other end of the rope
I made my bookmark long so it would work with books of many sizes (. Cut yours to whatever size you like best.
Add a charm or more beads to the other end of the rope.
Follow the same process: tie a knot at the end to keep it from sliding off.
You’re done! Yeah, it’s that easy. Choosing the beads and charms is the hardest part. 🙂
I’d love to see your bookmarks! If you post pictures on social media use the hashtag #MakeSomethingMondays to share them with me.
