Create your own fun Christmas decorations using these sparkly glitter beads, fluffy pipecleaners and elastic cord - you can decorate yourself too with a glittery bracelet or necklace!
The jar is filled with 800 glitter beads in red, green, blue, pink, silver and gold, 40 super fluffy white pipe cleaners and 8m of elastic cord for you to create your own pipe cleaner Christmas shapes, beaded Christmas trees and, if you like, some Christmas jewellery.
Pipe cleaner decorations are fun to make: simply thread the beads (with a large hole) onto the pipe cleaner and bend into a Christmas shape - a star, tree, robin or heart maybe - there are 7 design templates included to help get you started and you can invent your own as well - maybe a penguin, stocking or reindeer? You can twist pipe cleaners together to make bigger designs too.
For more fun, use the elastic to craft some beautiful beaded Christmas trees - hang on your tree, add to keyrings or clips to make sparkly winter accessories, you could even make mini ones to hang from earrings or add to a necklace to create a fun Christmas pendant. Full instructions included. Once you've learned how to thread a beaded tree, you can experiment with colour combinations, different sized trees and designs - with 800 beads and 8m of elastic there are plenty of supplies to get creative with.
You could also make a mini garland to decorate your jar (with an embossed "homemade" design), and maybe hang a bead tree or pipe cleaner decoration from the jar neck, ready to fill with something nice to make a lovely Christmas gift.
