Nostalgic Christmas™ Ornament Kit - Shimmer Icicles

  • Imagine Christmas, but personalized. The Nostalgic Christmas™ collection brings you original tree ornaments that are as beautiful as they are fun to create. These shimmering icicles are fun and easy to make, but the result is unusual and stunning! The frosty finish softens the unusual iridescent shimmer beads, tinted in a subtle glacier blue. Real cut crystal beads catch the light in a different way, giving flashes of sparkle. Aurora finish seed beads create a lacy look. Designed to match our Shimmer Snowflakes kit!
    This DIY kit has all the materials you need to create heirloom quality beaded ornaments that will easily be the highlight of any tree or window. Two different weights of shining, silver colored wire are used, to create lacy beaded icicles that hold their shape. The ornament hooks are included. This kit makes four icicle ornaments, as pictured.

    Each kit includes:
    - Pre-made ornament hooks.
    - Craft wire.
    - Jewelry-quality aurora crystal beads
    - Gleaming, iridescent shimmer glass beads.
    - Glimmering aurora seed beads.
    - Easy to follow, illustrated instructions.

Very pleased!

I have loved the Make-rame kids from this site, & decided to try out 3 of the ornaments kits (each of which makes several). I was afraid they might be too difficult (I didn't have all the suggested pliers and cutters etc) but they came out beautifully! The instructions were clear, the ornament beads were high-quality and sparkling in the light, and I was so happy with the finished product!

Bernice Ford

These are one of my favorites. Bought them last year and fell in love. Bought them again this year to give as gifts.
