Christmas Craft Challenge 2010 - Day 9

December 9th 2011

Beaded Mini Ornaments

These are going to be part of something else, but they were too cute not to have their own blog. They are all made of seed beads and 26 gauge wire. A couple also have 6mm beads and they are all simply held together with 1mm crimps.
The Christmas Tree is 1 3/4" x 1" while the Stars are 3" x 2" including their trail.

  1. Cut wire to length.
  2. Form base shape with wire.
  3. Thread on the seed beads.
  4. Fix design in place with silver crimp.
  5. Add additional highlight beads (on trees & holly only)
  6. Coil wire ends and pull out to form trail on stars only.
