About the designer

My name is Joanna, and I have been bead weaving for over a decade (how time flies). I love creating with those tiny seed beads...it's time consuming but very rewarding!

Pattern Description:

This lesson shows how to wrap a bulb ornament with seed beads using the popular beading technique of netting. Tutorial includes written instructions and clear, close up photos for EACH step. Steps on weaving in and knotting thread are included as well.
You may use any size bulb you like, but it must be sphere. I like to use shatterproof ornaments, ensuring they will last a long time.
They make lovely gifts for friends, and works up fairly quickly. If you have ever beaded before, you should have this finished under 2 hours.

Feel free to sell ornaments made from this tutorial. You shall not distribute or share the tutorial, nor teach a class from this tutorial.
