Project and Sample by Kate Richbourg

May your days be merry…and beaded! With gleaming cranberry reds and the warm glow of copper, they’re sure to be both.

The winter holidays are upon us, and we truly hope yours will be both merry and bright! Add some festive cheer with these gorgeous wire ornaments, adorned with some of our favorite beads and oh-so-fun to make! Why not gather your friends and make some together? These are quick and easy with stunning results. Pick up a package of small balloons (water balloons work great!) and get wrapping!

Check out our Recipe Page for the basics and make your own colorways. Enjoy!

Ingredients list is to the left and easy shopping can be done with the Shop Tab above!

Please join us as our worldwide community gathers on
Facebook at 10:30am Pacific Time on November 7th, 2018. It’s so much fun to go live with us and bead together! After the live broadcast the video will be available above.
