My husband, Dale, was on vacation last week. We decided not to go anywhere. Instead, we each worked on a few projects that had been waiting for a block of time. As a reward for getting a big project done, I gave myself an afternoon to play in my Studio.
I bought this ornament kit from Mary Maxim. Christmas in June? Why not?
The kit contained the beads and the glittery pipe cleaners. I supplied the wire snips and ruler (to cut the pipe cleaners to length), and the needle-nose pliers (to round the tips of the pipe cleaners).
I like to lay all the components out on my beading mat. I find it easier to work when all the bits are organized.
These 12 ornaments went together in a snap! I love the color and the shape. They have a nice weight too.
Finishing these ornaments got me in the mood to make some more. So I pulled out my beads and ...
You'll see tomorrow.
