There is an exciting new attraction at Creativ: Winter Wonderland Park of Christmas trees decorated with handmade ornaments.
That Bead Lady has invited the Toronto Bead Society to participate with her by making beaded ornaments. You just have to make an ornament (or two or three..) for the tree. With beads of course! You can make any type of decoration – something we can add to the tree.
Here’s the rules:
- Colours: silver, gold, white, clear, or crystal
- Any style is welcome - over a ball, dangly, snowflakes, stars, icicles, and more
- Clearly label your ornament and bring to the TBS September meeting
- All Ornaments will be returned at the TBS November meeting – or you can donate it as a fundraiser. (Fundraiser details to be determined.)
Need some beads? If you missed them at the June meeting there are beads available to get you started – of course you can use any beads – maybe you have some at home?
To get you started here’s some marvelous patterns:

These instructions do not teach spiral rope. You can find instructions for the basic spiral rope by searching "beaded spiral rope" on line or take a look at this quick you-tube video. The instructions below are for an icicle made of spiral rope.
The icicle is made by increasing the number of beads in the spiral.
