Hanging wall craft with bead chain, paper cup and polythene cover

 This is a beautiful hanging craft to decorate our home, party, function etc.

Things needed:

Paper cup - 2
Scissors, Marker
Bead chain (I bought a bunch of bead chains for a dollar at one dollar store - very cheap)
Polythene cover (grocery cover)
Glue gun
Here is the pictorial of this beautiful craft, for Video tutorial, click the link:
* To make polythene rose, open the polythene cover (grocery cover).
 * Cut into strips (length and breadth - your choice)
 * Apply glue over the full sheet and sprinkle glitters densely.
* Fold the cover to make it into a thick strip.
 * We can make beautiful rose with this polythene strip, please check this video to make rose:

* To decorate the paper cup, draw outline like this and cut the remaining extras.
 * Then paint the cup as like your choice.
* I have given acrylic paints and kept for 30 mins to dry.
* Paint both sides. Since my paper cup is thin, I have glued two cups together. If its thick, one is enough.
* Fix the roses with bead chain, length of the bead chain around 20 cm.
* Fix the bead chain at the tip of each petals, just fixing with instant fix glue or glue gun is enough, because with paper cup, beads will attach well and good.
 * To hang, fix the bead chains like this.

 * Hang it on wall using a nail.

 * This will look really awesome, because of its shining beads and colorful cup decoration.
