Each kit includes:
- Pre-formed wire snowflake forms.
- Jewelry-quality crystal and acrylic beads and glass pearls chosen specifically for their shine.
- Easy to follow, illustrated instructions.
Embrace a crafty Christmas with our easy to create, hard to forget beaded ornament kits.
Approx. size of each ornament = 3.5 in. (9 cm) point to point.
Tools needed = round-nosed pliers, and something for hanging the decorations, such as ribbon, cord, or ornament hangers.
Approx. time need to create = 10 minutes per ornament.
Experience needed = It's very easy to thread the beads; some hand strength and proper round-nose pliers needed to make the little loops.
I just love these beaded snowflakes! The beasts are lovely, the colors well coordinated, and the varied designs give distinctly different effects. I tend towards clear and lighter colors while my daughter prefers the bolder designs. All are lovely and elegant.
The forms take some hand strength and practice in forming the final loop. Invest in Memory Wire cutters and Memory Wire round-nosed pliers. While the directions were well-written with easy to follow illustrations, watch some videos on working with Memory Wire if you are new to this as I am.
Heed the advice in the directions about forming the loops facing the center and check twice that your loops are facing the same directions. It’s nearly impossible to fix if loop in the wrong direction, although I managed it twice with considerable effort.
Several of the form spokes broke from the effort to form the loop which I attribute to both my inexperience and attempts to tweak the loop. I purchased addition forms on Amazon at a good price so all was not lost.
Overall, lovely, well-designed kits (I purchased 4) and I would buy again.
These look perfect and fun to do with my kids. Nicer materials than the typical kids holiday craft. Saving for a project for next year!
Great kits! Beautiful beads that really shimmer and shine with light. Gorgeous on a Christmas tree!
Easy directions. Love these ornaments.
Hi - I wish that the beads that are included with the kits were a little better
quality. The wires are good quality, but they are difficult to bend.
