I was perusing the shelves of my local Colemans stationary shop the other day (looking for a quickie glue pen) and I stumbled across some little wire frames onto which beads could be threaded.
They naturally fell into my basket … now where have I heard that before?
Anyway, long story short, I didn’t lift them back out of my basket and put them back as I realised that I could make another fabby decoration for the Christmas tree!
The little wire frames come in a little packet.
I chose the one without beads (I have enough of those!) but they were available with beads also.
They were pretty much what they said – wireframes.
They called them stars, I was thinking more along the lines of snowflakes. You say tomato, I say cheese and onion crisps.
Anyway, I had a rummage through the bead collection and dug out a few sparklers and pearls and began planning.
After one attempt (which I changed as the ends of the wires looked a bit rubbish because I had threaded on too many beads) I came up with a couple of nice finished pieces.
Here’s the first without the tree so that you can see it’s form.
Cool isn’t it?!
I added the central dazzler (with Pinflair Glue Gel) in order to cover up the bare wire. I didn’t need to, as you will see in the next pics.
And there we have it, another decoration for my Balsam Hill Christmas Tree.
You can probably make out that I have finally started building up the tree with additional baubles and decorations – it really is starting to fill up quite nicely. I’m deliberating adding tinsel, but I’m not sure I want to…
