An adorable and easy Christmas craft for your tree! These 5-point stars made from our silicone beads bring such a festive and crafty personality to your DIY tree!
While there’s so many projects on our DIY Tutorials Page, we wanted to show you ONE little tutorial that can be made out of our 12mm beads - an adorable 5 pointed star ornament! Follow along below for the step-by-step instructions!!
- 1 length of 60" nylon cord
- Sharp scissors
- Crafting needle
- 10x 12mm beads in one color
- 10x 12mm beads in one color
- 5x 12mm beads in one color
1. Gather up your supplies and thread your cord of choice onto your crafting needle.
2. Thread on 10 x 12mm beads, pushing them to the middle point of your cord.
3. Taking the working end of your string, pass your crafting needle around and through your first bead the opposite direction, creating a loop.
4. Pull your cording to round out your loop.
5. On your working end of the cord that your crafting needle is still strung on, thread 2 x 12mm beads in a different color than your first 10 in the loop.
6. Take your crafting needle and work counterclockwise - skip a bead and push your needle through the next bead. Pull the cording taught.
7. Thread on another 2 beads in the same color and repeat step 6.
8. Continue doing this until you have gone the entire way around the loop. Your star should be taking shape.
9. You will end up with your cords coming out either side of your starting bead.
10. Take your crafting needle off of your working end (which is now much shorter than the other cording end), and thread the needle on the other longer cord.
11. Thread the cord counterclockwise through the corner bead closest to it.
12. Thread one of your 5 x 12mm beads in your third color choice. Feed the string back down through the next corner bead.
We are L O V I N G this adorable 5-point star! As much as we adore our beautiful glass ornaments for our own tree’s, we love knowing that if our littlest toddler grabbed this ornament off the tree, it won’t shatter or break!
As always, happy crafting!
