If you are looking for a fun craft activity that will also give you high quality Christmas decorations that can become charming heirlooms in the future, this project is for you.Follow the instructions below to make this fabulous Snowflake Decoration for Christmas with Serinity Beads.
The unique combination of beads and pearls that can go onto the wire snowflake base is entirely customisable, making this a project that can be shared by the whole family. Beaded snowflakes are also very popular at Christmas craft fairs so if you are hoping to develop a supply of Christmas decorations, this guide shows you just how easy it can be to create something that everyone will be impressed by, even in this aspirational age of Instagram! This simple tutorial gives you a basic design and we encourage you to experiment with different colour schemes and bead shape combinations, so that every snowflake is unique!

Thread the Serinity beads and pearls in random order onto each spoke of the snowflake wire, leaving about 1cm at the end of each spoke.
Trim the headpin wire above the bead/pearl to about 1cm, then make a right-angle bend close up against the bead, using Chain Nose pliers. Grip the end of the wire with Round Nose pliers and roll the wire over to form a loop, holding the beads in place with your thumb nail. Keeping a firm grip on the wire continue to turn the pliers until you have a nice loop which should be centred above the bead/pearl.
Your beads and pearls should now all be securely in place. Using one of the loops, thread some Clear Illusion Cord or ribbon through the loop and secure with a knot, in order to create a looped thread so that your decoration can be hung.
