Art Bead Scene Ornament Blog Hop

Photobucket


Hey, Hey,

Today is the hop ! For those of you who are just tuning in, Art Bead Scene has organized an ornament blog hop. Below you will find a list if links. Start at the top and start clicking, each link will take you to a handmade ornament made with art beads.

Here is my Poinsettia Ornament. You might recognize the poinsettia as one of my holiday pendants. It has a loop on each side for stringing. I took advantage of these loops for the arched hanger. I used 24 gauge red craft wire and some assorted red, white, and green beads. I started at one loop and twisted the wire to secure it. From there I started weaving, twisting, and adding beads. I used a couple of pieces of wire so I could get some cute spirals along the way. It was super easy. I think it would be just as cute at your desk or on your wall if you didn't feel like hanging it on a tree. You could make the arch a bit longer and hang it off a doorknob.

I added some poinsettia pendants to the Etsy shop this morning. I made sure to include all of the supplies for the ornament so it's a one stop shop. I even made the mini kits a special price for today...just in honor of the blog hop fun.

I hope you enjoy hopping around all day, I know I can't wait to see what everyone has made. Make sure you stop by the blog this weekend for my special open house sale. Starting Thursday and running through Saturday there will be lots going on.

Happy Hopping!
