When I received a supply of beads from Blue Moon Beads to play with, I knew I’d use this collection for something Christmasy. I wasn’t sure what. Then after playing with my French Script paper mache ornament idea, I knew.
OK I mostly knew! I gathered up some of the supplies I’d been sent. My “creative process” is to have a bunch of stuff out and then see where it takes me.
This idea came from a mixed bead tin called appropriately, Red Velvet. I mixed in some glass pearls that were also in my supplies.
I grabbed some eye pins and then added some of my bead mix.
I stamped my plain paper mache ornaments (more detail here) and then pierced the bottom of each ornament with a needle. Threaded my beaded pin through and secured with a dab of super glue. Then went around the edges with metallic red glitter.
Embellished with self adhesive rhinestones and pearls, but I think the beaded ends make all the difference.
