The Follow the Star Beaded Ornament Cover Instructions is a downloadable PDF.  Nothing will be shipped to you.  If you want to print out the instructions, you'll need to have a printer.  You'll have access to the download after you checkout.  You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader in order to open the file.  The PDF is four pages long and includes 19 close-up step-by-step photos.  

This is not a kit.  No materials are included.  

Follow the Star features five bold stars (or poinsettia or snowflakes depending on colorway) stitched from 2-hole GemDuo beads.  The stars are joined by cascading swoops accented with sparkling fire polished. 

Follow the Star is a beginner-plus level project and requires some previous bead stitching experience. You should know the following beading skills:

  • how to thread a needle
  • how to tie an overhand knot
  • how to end thread with a half-hitch knot
  • how to add thread
  • how to control your thread to avoid tangles and/or knots

      The following supplies are needed to make a Follow the Star ornament (not included): 

      • 2 1/2" Christmas onrnament bulb
      • Czech fire polished beads
      • size 11 Japanese seed beads
      • size 11 Toho Demi beads
      • size 8 Japanese seed beads
      • 2-hole GemDuos
      • beading needle
      • beading thread

      The "Pattern Only" option is best for independent beaders either working from their own stash or willing/able to search for their own materials because we do not provide vendor recommendations nor color names/numbers. The supply list is on the first page of each project PDF and includes the type/size of each required component as well as the required quantity. The quantity may be listed as a range if the instructions include stringing charts for multiple sizes. If you would prefer to purchase a complete kit that includes both the instructions and all the materials needed to make a project, please reach out. Depending on stock availability we may be able to make you a kit even if that project isn't currently listed as a kit on our website. (There is a "Contact Us" link at the bottom of this page.)
