Embrace a crafty Christmas with our easy to create, hard to forget beaded ornament kits.
Approx. size of each ornament = 2.5 in. (6 cm) top to bottom
Tools needed = Ruler, wire cutters, round-nosed pliers, chain-nose pliers.
Approx. time need to create = 30 minutes per ornament.
Experience needed = Not difficult, but take a little longer than some other kits. If the person does not work neatly with the wires, s/he may have some trouble threading all the wires through the spacers and pearl head beads.
I made one of the little angels a few weeks ago but I wasn't really happy about the way the skirt looked with all those little beads at the waist line. Decided to finish the other two today and I just love them. They are easy to make although I did break one of the wires and had to re-make a skirt part. To fix the area around the skirt, I added a large gold bead endcap. That made a very nice difference because the little gold beads were no longer visible. The bead cap covered them very nicely. I also had a problem on my first one getting all those pieces of wire through the top pieces and I didn't like how thick it made the top loop. On my third one, I left 4 wires down for the arms instead of two. That made the top look much nicer and the top pieces were much easier to put on. Since I left two wires for each arm, I took one from each side and twisted them together at the back, then used the other for arms as per instructions..I ould like to make more of them now that I have it down to a science! :)
very pretty, haven't had a chance to make them up yet but hope to make them soon
Beautiful angels to adorn any tree.
These angels are easy to make and beautiful when completed. I give angels to my acoloytes at church each year for Christmas and these are by far the prettiest and easiest to make that I have done.
I love angels and this would be a nice ornament to add to any collection. Easy to read instructions and a very great price.
