Kheops Beads Christmas Decoration Pattern

£6.00

For this pattern you will need Kheops beads, Superduos, size 11 Miyuki seed beads, 4mm faceted and True2 beads. You will be using basic thread paths, but the structure of the decoration means I would recommend this project for beaders with a good experience level.

This Christmas decoration pattern was the result of some beading ‘play-time’ with the Kheops beads. It’s fun to make and looks beautiful on your tree!

You will be combining these with Superduos, seed beads and of course the faceted bead embellishment. I sell the beads you need in my beading supplies. So, grab your pattern (it comes with a discount coupon) and then get the discount on your beads!

About the Kheops Beads Christmas Decoration Pattern

This pattern came about as I was carrying out a few more experiments with Kheops beads. The bright red colour, combined with gold, led me to think of making a Christmas decoration. Although, if you wish, this design would actually work as a pendant as well. Just try it in your favourite colours.

When I started out, I had a few ideas about combining Kheops beads to create star shapes. So I began by trying to create a central section around which I could add the points of a star.

As so often happens with designing, the beads did not want to play as I had envisioned. So, instead of creating a star shape, I found myself doing something rather different.

Once I had the basic Kheops structure in place, the design just evolved. I had no idea how it was going to end up, but just kept reading the beads and adding what I thought was needed. So, as you will see when you make the Christmas decoration, you will be adding layer, upon layer to create the final design.

I found I needed to add in some faceted beads to create the perfect (to my mind!) finish. Once I had managed to work my way through the design process, I realised that this Christmas decoration pattern is not actually that time-consuming to make. You can definitely make a decoration in a day. Possibly even just an afternoon. So, you can easily sprinkle your Christmas tree with these beautiful decorations. Or maybe give them to friends or family as a special gift.
