Inspiration can come from many sources. When I received my copy of Woman's Day, I knew I had to make the paper straw wreath that emblazoned the cover of the magazine.
I chose beads as my medium...fancy that! Red and white tiny size 15/0 seed beads were chosen. I used CRAW as the stitch of choice for the arms of the wreath. Red Swarovski 3mm bicones were used to tip each arm. The arms flopped around so I decided to add more stability. In so doing, the tiny wreath transformed into a beautiful peppermint snowflake. I used 4mm crystal rounds and bicones with the tiny seed beads to connect each arm. I am very proud of my finished piece!!! Do you think I should make instructions for this?
