DIY Make a Pearl Bow Tea Strainer

Introducing the Pearl Bow Tea Strainer, a delightful and elegant accessory that will enhance your tea-drinking experience. Crafted with precision and attention to detail, this tea strainer is designed to bring both functionality and beauty to your tea rituals. The unique pearl bow shape adds a touch of sophistication, making it a perfect addition to any tea set or a thoughtful gift for tea enthusiasts. With its sleek and polished finish, the Pearl Bow Tea Strainer is not only functional but also a stunning piece that will elevate your tea-drinking experience to new heights.

Supplies:

  • Pearl beads
  • Gold beading wire 
  • Mesh tea ball strainer
  • Ruler
  • Needle nose pliers

STEP 1: First measure out a piece of wire that is roughly 12” in length. Cut with your wire cutters or pliers.

STEP 2: Use your pliers to remove the metal hook on the end of your mesh tea strainer chain and set aside for later.

STEP 3: Bend your 12” piece of wire in half so that it makes a V shape and then string on 12 beads to the right side.

STEP 4: Take the right end of your wire and bend it down and through your first bead (toward the left), creating a loop. Pull the tail as tight as possible.

STEP 5: Add the end of your mesh strainer chain to the left tail of your wire and then string on 11 more pearl beads.

STEP 6: Now take the left end of your wire and bend it down and through your first bead again (toward the right), creating another loop. Pull the tail tight. You should be left with the two upper loops of your bow shape.

STEP 7: Now string 6 beads on either end of your wire to form the ends of the ribbon.

STEP 8: Finish off the bow shape by bending the end of each wire tail into a small circle with your needle nose pliers to secure the beads in place. Then use wire cutters to trim off any extra wire.

Now your tea strainer is ready to fill with your favorite loose leaf tea! Turn on the kettle and fill your favorite mug. Drop the filled tea strainer into the water and let your cute beaded bow dangle off the edge of your mug as a sweet little decorative charm while your tea brews!
