Best online classes for festive decorations
If you’re someone who needs a bit more help, then an online class would be a great option for you. And, you’re in luck!
I have some fabulous classes for Christmas projects…
Both these online classes create decorations that you can hang on your tree…or just about anywhere else.
You get to work through everything at your own pace. And you’ll be learning from videos as well as a complete PDF tutorial. So, along with the chance to ask questions when you get stuck, this gives you everything you need.
The beaded lanterns contain battery-operated tea lights. So, you can use them to (safely) light up your tree…or home. Choose from a huge range of designs…or make them all!
Or, how about the Christmas present beaded boxes? These are a little gift and decoration all in one. They’re brilliant for personalising and sharing some love with the special people in your life.
Does that sound good? Then use this link to get started now.
Baubles, baubles, and more baubles!
There’s no denying that some of the best beaded Christmas decorations are baubles. You’re probably familiar with the idea of adding some kind of beaded ornamentation to a glass bauble. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then check out this blog post).
But did you know you can make entire baubles from seed beads? This is what I mean…
Pick your size (6cm or 4cm), grab your beads, and enjoy this Peyote stitch pattern!
It is also supplemented with an online class. So, for anyone who is new to the techniques, you can learn via video, and ask for help in the class. If you’re happy following the PDF pattern, then that’s all you need!
This is one of the best projects because it’s great for using up beads from your stash. The colour options are endless and you can even use it for getting rid of those leftovers from other projects.
Best beaded Christmas decorations for those with time on their hands!
If you like a challenge, and you’ve got plenty of time to kill, then I’ve got three final projects that will definitely meet your needs…
Go back to the true meaning of Christmas with a complete Nativity set, including stable! This is definitely not one for the faint-hearted. But if you’re after a family heirloom, it could be the perfect project…
If you want to celebrate Advent in style, then how about making a beaded Advent calendar? I’ve actually got two options you can try…
You could go for a traditional Advent calendar with boxes to open and candles to light…
…or, make a beaded Christmas tree with 24 opening drawers in which you can hide some tiny gifts.
So, that gives you plenty of scope to find your best beaded Christmas decoration!
