Techniques and Experience
The beaded Christmas wreath pattern uses an incredibly simple technique. So, even if you have never done any beading before, you will be able to make this wreath.
I originally created the design when I needed a project for a large group of beginners, at short notice! It proved to be very successful and I liked it so much that I offered it as one of my first kits for the Craft Channel. When the kits sold out, I made the pattern available here.
If you are completely new to beading, then you will find this free guide to starting out in bead-weaving helpful. There is also a lot more information and resources available on the My World of Beads website.
About the Beaded Christmas Wreath Pattern
The wreath looks lovely decorating a Christmas tree, or I have also used these beaded Christmas wreaths to decorate the front of Christmas cards. The wreaths measure just over 1″ (2.5cm) across.
You can make a whole batch of these beaded Christmas wreaths in a short space of time. So, they are great little gifts for special friends. You can see some of the ways of using them in the photos in the gallery.
