Delicate Snowflake Ornament

By:

Create a delicate snowflake ornament with colorful "cocktail" beads. A snowflake wire form makes this project a snap. Cover your tree with these beaded snowflake ornaments from Rings & Things or hang from windows.


Delicate Snowflake Ornament


Materials:

  • 1 #20-002-3220 Toho Seed Bead Cocktails™, tropical hut
  • 1 #55-910 Snowflake wire form
  • 6 #43-009-3 Figure-8 wire connectors
  • 13 #23-319-044 Tip-drilled glass teardrop beads
  • 1ft. #46-708-14 ColourCraft® 28-gauge wire, silver plate
  • Heavy-duty round-nose pliers
  • small cutters

Instructions:

  1. Start by randomly adding beads onto one (of six) section(s) of the snowflake form. Once you have finished one section of the snowflake form, use your round-nose pliers to create a loop at the end of the wire.
     
  2. Attach a teardrop bead to the large end of one figure-8 connector. Add this to the end of your completed section.
     
  3. Repeat steps 1-2 five more times for a total of six sections.
     
  4. Tie a teardrop bead to the center of the snowflake using approx. 1ft of small beading wire. Weave wire around the snowflake prongs, adding a teardrop bead after each prong. Go through your beads a few times making sure your wire weave is both on top of the snowflake form, and the bottom. Finish by “tying” a wire knot and snipping any extra wire. Be aware of sharp edges and file them down with a small file.


TIP: Wire wrapping or weaving does not need to be a precise or perfected skill. As long as the beads look the way you want them, you have “done it right.” Don’t give up! It may take a few tries to get it the way you like it.
