Quick Project Steps

Looking for a festive and unique holiday gift? The Christmas Star Ornament is a beautiful, shiny piece that is perfect for the holiday season. This reversible piece can also be made into earrings or a pendant, and makes a great gift for your loved ones.
Begin with .006 beading thread. Pick up one DiamonDuo and three 15/0s. Repeat five times to make a pattern. Tie into a knot. This will be the back of the pendant. Next you will step up to the top hole of the DiamonDuo. Pick up a 15/0 and an AVA, then another 15/0, a bicone, another 15/0 and the next AVA. Sew through another 15.0 and back down the DiamonDuo. Pick up another 15/0 and bring the needle through the other side of the AVA. Repeat around the circle.
Watch the Christmas Star Ornament tutorial to see detailed step-by-step directions to decorate your Christmas ornament by adding DiamonDuos to the front and a Potomac crystal rivoli in the center.
Add a wire guard to the top of the star if you would like to use it as a pendant or earrings. Tie off the thread ends and burn off.
