RE: Easy Ornaments

sure looks like you are very talented to me, very beautiful ornaments! wonderful crafting! thats what I love about fourms mostly ours, but the idea of shareing our crafts, and the willing to explane it all so others can make it also.

RE: Easy Ornaments

Thanks for the comments. Yes they are easy and here is what I had for instructions. You have to use wired ribbon. I made my pleats 2 1/4" long. There is a bead between each pleat. Hope this helps.

RE: Easy Ornaments

Oh, wow, they're beautiful! On my poinsettia bows,I didn't use a needle and thread to make mine, I used thin floral wire like it was a needle, and I didn't have any problems. Also, I skipped the bead in between each pleat on my last ones, and just twisted the wire a bit tighter, and glued beads in the center.
I love the beaded snowflakes, and the colors you chose :D

RE: Easy Ornaments

I am having trouble getting the thread tied tight. Great idea with the wire. I am going to try that tonight. The beaded snowflakes hang on my picture window in my sitting room. Not sure if you can see them here or not.
