Hello everyone! It’s been a little while since I have written about kandi, and if you are unfamiliar with what kandi is, it’s simply a term that refers to crafts that are made out of some sort of string (fishing line and bead n’ stretch are commonly used) and pony beads. You can create a huge amount of kandi items, such as ties, handbags, bras, and more! In this article, I am showing a simple kandi poster that I created, and how I decided to hang it on my wall.
My kandi poster (seen above) was inspired by Tokidoki creations. It’s a little milk carton/cow hybrid with the word “leche” across its front. I made it a few years back, and thought it would simply look adorable on my wall. So in order to do this, I pulled out some elastic string that I had in a tan color. I felt this string would match the horns on the little cow quite nicely. I cut three strands, all the same length, and then tied them together from one end.
The idea here was to braid these strands together, and I felt that the easiest way to do this was to tape the elastic string to the wall. This enabled me to pull the string toward me as I braided it without the braid coming loose, or the string moving around.
And voila! A beautiful braid! I felt that it would not only add visual interest to my kandi poster, but would add durability as well.
Next, I grabbed a needle and stuck it through one end of my braid. I gauged where the middle of my kandi poster was, and then I wove the braid through the beads in such a way that I could use tie each end together, and then use it to hang the poster on the wall.
And this was what I ended up with:
I thought this was a cute idea, and I plan to create and hang more kandi posters in the future.
And to you all, I wish happy crafting! Thank you for reading!
