Here we have another adorable addition to our tube ornament collection! Not only that, we have also made it available in our new style of instructions with helpful diagrams and a colour word chart!
The Polar Bear tube ornament is such a simple and cute idea and the design is beaded around a plastic hang tube (the ones which are a lot of beads such as delicas are sold in – you may have some lying around unused!). The ornament can be opened using the top cap and items placed inside and hung using the candy cane coloured hanging loop.
So, what should you put inside your tube? Well, that’s up to you! Here we have added Jelly Bean sweets, but other sweets, letters, money or even beads will work!
In this pattern we give full detailed photographic and graphic instructions, and there are 18 detailed steps, making this pattern even suitable for beginners to beading.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. Round Peyote stitch is used but full detailed instructions are given, and no previous knowledge of the stitch is required. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.
There are 9 colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 6.5 cm x 1.75 cm.
Additionally, 1 x 8mm emerald crystal and a Plastic Tube With Hang Cap 2 inches x 9/16 inch is also required (available from www.threadabead.com - our ref: 939)
The bead pattern supplied is 14 pages and includes 18 step by step photo and graphic instructions. A word chart is also included.
