Have you seen our Christmas Wreath Wood Ornaments and wondered what a full beaded wreath version would look like? So did we, and it turns out it’s spectacular!
Of course, a full big round Christmas wreath would not be a Christmas wreath without a red bow, and so we created this pattern for a beaded bow that you can add to the full wreaths.
But a beaded bow can be useful for lots of things, not just wreaths… how about a necklace, some rather snazzy festive earrings, hair clips, charms for items such as book marks to make quick festive gifts ... The ideas are endless!
In this pattern we give full detailed photographic and graphic instructions to make just the bow, and there are 29 detailed steps.
Note if you are making a full beaded wreath the pattern: Christmas Wreath Ornament (Ref X) contains all the instructions to make the foliage, poinsettias, baubles and pinecones. But we will cover in this pattern a small amount of guidance for putting them all together to make a full wreath wood ornament.
This bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica. Odd Count 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 2 delica colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 3.25cm (h) x 3.5cm(w).
If you want to bead a full wreath ornament, you will also need the pattern: Christmas Wreath Ornament and a Wood Wreath Ornament plus twine or similar for the loop.
The bead pattern supplied is 23 pages and includes 29 step by step photos and graphic instructions. A word chart is also included.
