They come in 3 different sizes in our local beading shop.
The kids and I had fun threading all the beads.
I just bought a variety of shapes and sizes.
It was good to have some smaller ones to start in the middle.
At the end of each “spike” we just curved the wire over
to stop the beads coming off.
(I’m sure there’s a technical beading term for this…?)
We discovered that you needed to complete each “spike”
and finish the end before doing the next one
or you risked tipping all the beads back off again!
I intend to thread ribbon and hang our stars
near our front door for Christmas.
This was a fun craft to do with the kids
and fits nicely with my idea of starting a new tradition -
making a new ornament with the kids each year.
