November 2008 Beaded 3-D Christmas Tree Project.

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded tutorials and other project. This month's project is a beaded Christmas Tree, made with Japanese glass seed beads using right angle weave Beading technique.

The pictorials are illustrated with spaces between beads for a clearer direction, in the actual beading, there should be no spaces.

    (using only one end of the string) Add four beads on one side of the string, loop the same string back through the first bead added on this step.
    Continue to pass the same string through the bead marked A from step 12.
Step 15:
  • Continue to:

    Repeat step 14 five more times, until the black string meets up with the red string, tie a dead knot and pass the remaining string back through the piece for a more secure piece.
