This beaded Advent candle kit is here by popular demand. The original pattern has been really popular. But it requires several different bead types. So, a few customers have asked for a kit with everything all together.
Your beaded Advent candle kit contains:
- Size 10 delicas
- Size 11 delicas
- Piggy Beads
- Size 11 seed beads
- 6mm round beads
You will need to provide your own thread. My personal preference is for Fireline as I find this is strong and helps me get good beading tension. But not everyone agrees, so just use whichever thread works best for you. If you want to know more about beading threads, check out this blog>>
Please make sure you choose the correct kit type – you can get this as a beads only kit or as a complete kit with the pattern included.
Experience and Techniques
This is an advanced beading project. Although you will be working in Peyote stitch, the techniques are really quite tricky.
So, adding the pattern to a Peyote tube is not simple, although I have included some really amazing tricks to help with this. Plus, although the pine cones use even count Peyote, it is a little trickier when done with the Piggy beads.
The beaded advent candle kit instructions are really comprehensive and explain everything clearly. I have included diagrams and photos as well. So, it just needs you to feel really confident with the techniques and you will be fine.
About the Beaded Advent Candle Kit
My beaded Advent candle came from a couple of other patterns. Well, you may recognise the candle with removable beaded flame idea. I first made this in my Advent Calendar.
You may also spot the pine cones from a separate pattern. I simply realised that these, along with my beaded holly, would make a great candle holder.
However, when I made my original beaded advent candle elements for my calendar, this was the most tedious part of the project. So, for this pattern, I have made things more interesting.
I was doing some research into Advent candle traditions and found some images of very ornate candles. So, I decided to reflect this idea by adding a patterned section around my candle. This definitely adds some challenges to the beading, so you won’t get bored with endless rows of white Peyote!
The flame for this beaded Advent candle is separate. So, you can light the candle whenever you wish in Advent. Enjoy!
