Instructions

  1. Using your scissors, cut a 1 yard length of wildfire white beading thread. Thread a size 10 beading needle onto the end.
  2. Place a stop bead on the tail of the thread, approximately 8" from the end. You can use any spare seed bead you have for this, just make sure it is a different color then the beads you are using in this project.
  3. Please watch the video: How to Make a Daisy Chain in Bead Weaving
  4. Following what you learned in the video, make a daisy with 6 Toho 11/0 silver lined seed beads around the outside and then another seed bead of the same size/color in the middle. After this daisy, string 1 Swarovski Crystal 4mm bicone in crystal. Make another daisy, add another bicone, another daisy, another bicone, etc. until you have 7 inches of this pattern beaded.
  5. String 5 Toho 11/0 silver lined seed beads. Thread your needle through the hole at the top of the Swarovski snowflake so that the beads you just strung go through the hole.
  6. Please watch the video: How to Make a Swarovski Christmas Ornament
  7. The above video will show you how to secure your daisy chain to your ornament, remove the stopper bead, and tie off your thread.
  8. Happy Holidays!
