Do you have your holiday gift or decor projects picked out? If not, or if you are hoping for holiday inspiration, this article is for you! Here at Bello Modo, we have a sizeable collection of christmas-themed beads, books, kits, and other crafty supplies. To start with, I am going to link some of our Bead Mixes that come in traditional Christmas colors…
- Miyuki Bead Soup – #43 Old Fashioned Christmas
- Miyuki 11/0 Mix – #22 Old Fashioned Christmas
- Miyuki Delica 11/0 Mix – #19 Old Fashioned Christmas
What else is there? To start with we have a really neat book called A Very Beaded Christmas:46 Projects that Glitter, Twinkle & Shine. As the title suggests, there are 46 different projects in the book including ornaments, centerpieces, handmade gifts, and more. Anyone who can string or glue or stitch can make these fun and charming wreaths, holiday cards, one-of-a-kind stockings, and gift bags. The photos in this book are wonderful! Just check out this adorable miniature gift box created with a matchbox and beads! Of course, you could use this inspiration to create a similar beaded box with any number of size boxes.
Maybe you need something to put that perfect touch on a package you have just finished wrapping? Or a stocking that needs a final touch of class? Here is a wonderful, hand-dyed silk ribbon that lends itself to such a task, 7/16″Hand Dyed Silk Ribbon – Olde English Christmas. This ribbon is sold by the yard. Another fun ribbon is the Pom Pom Ribbon – Christmas.
Plenty of Christmas charms or drops are available in sets or by the piece…
