Retired - Set of 6 Beaded Christmas Ornaments

PROJECT C652
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Hang these delightful ornaments from your tree, a package, or even in the window. With the placement of the beads and the wire, you can make these ornaments as elaborate or simple as you like - the possibilities are endless! The ingredients in this project will let you make 6 complete ornaments.
Instructions
  1. To see how to make these ornaments, please watch the video: How to Use the Beadsmith Holiday Wire Form Set.
  2. In this video you will see how to add beads to the outer wire form, finish the form, and add decorative accents using the wire provided in the kits and an assortment of beads.
  3. Tip: Bead mixes work great for this project as you get a lot of beads in a variety of colors that you can fill your forms with. Do not try to do all of your wire wrapping accents with one length of wire, cut the wire (that comes with the forms) into short lengths just as long as you need them to be for each wire/bead accent.
  4. Feel free to recreate the patterns you see in the photos and the video but also have fun and let your imagination run wild. As long as the beads stay on the forms, there is no wrong way to make these ornaments - add as many or as few beads as you want.
