Brick Stitch Ornaments

PROJECT C2025
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Advanced
Adorn your Christmas tree with these sweet brick stitch beaded ornaments. They make great gift toppers too.
Instructions
By following the instructions below you will make one ornament, simply repeat the instructions and following along with the other patterns to make the other two.
  1. If you are unfamiliar with Brick Stitch please watch our tutorial video here.
  2. To see the techniques needed to complete these ornaments, please watch our video: How to Bead Weave Brick Stitch Christmas Ornaments. In this video you will be walked thru how to increase and decrease the brick stitch as needed as you follow along with the pattern. This is a bit of an advanced technique, so please use the pattern and video to guide you.
  3. Begin in the center row across the ornament as seen in the video. Start with your row of ladder stitch that is 28 beads across and about 6 feet of beading thread. As you work you may need to tie off and add more thread. Begin your brick stitch and follow along with the pattern.
  4. Once you have completed first part of the pattern, make your loop of 14 beads. Move the thread to the beginning and continue the bottom of the pattern. Once you are done, tie off your threads.
Please note you will have enough beads to complete all three ornaments. If you make alterations, please note you may need to purchase additional beads.
