It’s not too early to start creating for the next snowy season! Using small size 11 seed beads, needle, and thread you will construct a 1¼-inch delicate yet easy to make beaded snowflake by hand. Then attach the snowflake to a 3½-inch by 3-inch felted wool mitten ornament. Snowflakes can be made in several sizes, and designed in many ways as in nature every snowflake is unique! Finish off the mitten by binding the wool layers together with an easy beaded edge stitch.
These beaded wool mittens are perfect for a winter wreath attachment, tree ornament, or festive brooch. No prior beading experience necessary.
Students to bring:
- Mechanical pencil
- Sharp scissors to cut layered paper and wool
- Embroidery or small sharp scissors
- A few straight pins
- Personal lamp such as Ott light and extension cord
- Power strip to share
- Glasses if needed for handwork
