The air here in New England is becoming colder by the day. The leaves have fallen off of the trees. The smell of wood burning fireplaces fills the air. Thanksgiving will be upon us in a few days. Last but not least, a local vacant lot is now filled with freshly cut Christmas trees. Christmas afficionados will soon strap these trees onto their cars and drag these festive trees into their homes.
It is clear that Christmas will be upon us in the very near future. As such, I find myself more and more inspired to teach you how to make glass Christmas ornaments. For this latest post I have developed a detailed, step-by-step pattern for a glass, pyramid point star ornament. An image of this ornament design is shown below.
This is a great pattern if you are just beginning to learn how to make glass Christmas ornaments. I have carefully selected the beads in this design, such that all beads are available in the US at the time of the posting of this article. The materials needed for the pattern include:
- 24 gauge wire
- 22 gauge wire
- Seven – 6mm diameter round blown glass beads (or additional craft beads)
- Five – 8mm diameter round blown glass beads
- One – 10mm long oval blown glass beads
- 4mm diameter bump tube
- Ten – solid glass craft beads
- Twenty – 30mm long bugle beads
The full pattern is available on my Craftsy Store for purchase. Note that I have also posted various free patterns on this site that teach you how to make glass Christmas ornaments. If you are just getting into glass Christmas ornaments then you likely want to start there. However, the instructions that I provide in my paid patterns are extremely detailed and are guaranteed to teach you how to make these lovely ornaments.
I try to charge a very small fee for these patterns. My goal is to make the patterns accessible to anyone, and all funds enable me to keep this blog up and running. I truly appreciate your readership and support, and my pattern sales allow me to invest in materials that I can use to create the subject of my next blog post!
