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.)
