The Christmas 2019 ornament is: A Christmas Cracker! Almost a full size cracker, the ribbon fastening means you can re use the cracker many times and it is large enough to 'hide' a bracelet or earrings and maybe even a tissue party hat and motto! This design is worked entirely in Miyuki Delica beads.

The tutorial provides step by step instructions, with very clear colour photographs for this box. You can bead it in any colour way you choose. You can change the pattern as both a pictorial diagram and a word pattern are both included in the tutorial. You could also incorporate an initial perhaps in the wide white space incorporated into the design.


This ornament is approximately 18cm/7" in length and 5cm/2” diameter when finished.

The tutorial is comprehensive and clear - 14 pages and 29 clear colour photographs!

I would advise this is an Advanced beading tutorial. I am confident that an Intermediate beader, looking for something a little challenging, will also be able to accomplish this tutorial as I have included as many helpful hints and tips as I can. Also, I am here to help for those of you trying to tackle something a little more difficult!

You should be comfortable working in component form, peyote, circular peyote, and starting and ending new threads. You also need to know how to bead a peyote triangle. You will need to be able to follow a colour graph, although a word chart is also included.

If you would like advice on the quantity of beads required to make the Christmas Cracker Box please do feel free to get in touch.
