DIY Christmas - Free Beaded Holiday Ornament Cover8:00 AM
Chain nose pliers
Although many of the pictures in progress show the ornament cover on the ornament. I put this together on a flat surface and simply slid it onto the ornament for pictures.
Step 2: String 8 inches of beading wire through each crimp tube except the first. Adjust the crimp to the middle of the wire and crimp the tube. Repeat for the other 3 crimps, cinching the circle so that there is only a little slack. Cover every crimp with a crimp cover.
Step 3: Choose one wire and string 8 seed beads, a 6mm crystal, 8 seed beads, an 8mm crystal, 8 seed beads, a tear drop crystal and a crimp tube. Clip a bead stopper on the end of the wire. Repeat the stringing pattern on the next wire.
Step 4: Use a 5 inch piece of beading wire to string through the 6mm crystal in both wires. String a crimp tube and pass the other end of the wire through the crimp in the opposite direction to create a 20mm circle. Crimp and cover the crimp with a crimp cover. Trim excess wire.
Step 5: Repeat Step 4 to connect the two 8mm crystal beads in the same way.
Step 6: Remove the bead stopper from the bottom of the wire strand. Cinch the wire down and crimp. Cover the crimp with a cover. Trim excess wire.
Step 7: Repeat Step 6 for the second strand.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 3-7 for the other three sides of the ornament.
