I have been making some gorgeous little decorations for Fizz’s school christmas fayre and decided to sell them among friends for charity too. For each 1 I charged £3.50 and £2 from each will be donated to The Lullaby Trust in memory of Jennie’s daughter Matilda.
Here is How To Make A Beaded Christmas Garland
Memory wire – this wire makes 2-3 beaded garland
Letters – for names or happy words
Coloured beads of your choice
Organza storage bag
Fabric or washi tape
Cut the memory wire to size, you need this to overlap to be able to secure the wire in place
Thread on beads – make sure that your letters are the right way first then add coloured beads and your charm in whichever order you want
Thread the extra wire through the beads and secure with a little fabric tape
Add a ribbon if you prefer to hang this way or you can hang as is.
These make lovely little gifts and Fizz loves hep out with these too.
Excuse the how to video – it is a bit messy but you will get what you need to do!
