Paper Cocoon Ornament – day 209

The paper cocoons that we make like the paper bead saucers have amazing colors, showing off beautifully the magazine patterns and coloration.  Since Christmas is just around the corner I thought that they are great as Christmas Ornaments.

Paper Bead Christmas Star Ornament

Posted on Nov 13, 2009 in How-To's / Tutorials | 6 comments

This Christmas instead of sending Christmas cards I thought making Christmas star ornament  from paper beads for my clients and contacts in the home care industry.  The star ornament reminds me of Christmas lanterns we hung from our windows as a child.  I know they will think about me as they hang these little star ornament on their Christmas trees.

The materials used for this project: paper bead tubes (I’m sure by now you have made quite a few), 3-4mm glass beads or crystals, 24 gauge craft wire and ribbon.  The paper bead tubes are made with the bamboo rollers we have and you can use your leftover holiday paper.
