the last ornaments

A few years ago, my mom gave me a set of these very pretty beaded snowflake ornaments:



This year I decided to try and make a few. After several failures I figured it out and came up with this:




Also very pretty, if I do say so myself. But by the time it was finished, I felt finished with the project. I am a little burned out with ornaments this year, but I'm sure I'll be ready for them again next year. This ornament went to a friend at church.

I also made a beaded icicle ornament which was very easy and quick. I only made one of these as well, but plan to make a bunch more for next year's tree.




This will be my last post until after the holiday. Merry Christmas!

I'm attempting the snowflakes... any pointers?

These are pretty simple - my only suggestion is to get thick enough wire that it doesn't break when twisted a few times, but thin enough that it is easily pliable. Good luck!
