December 2006 3-D Beaded Santa Claus Project

You can find a variety of Free Arts and Craft Project here, including beaded project and other project. This month's project is a beaded 3 D Santa Claus made with Japanese seed beads using the Right Angle Weave technique (RAW). Great as a Christmas tree ornament or as a jewelry gift.

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

Beaded Santa Claus :

What you need:

1)    Glass seed beads size 11/0 (silver white, black, red and green) 
2)    Beading string (25mm)  

Step 1: Before you start, if this is your first attempt at 3-D RAW figures, I would suggest you start with the beaded angel project by clicking here.

Always Remember to pull tight on EVERY STEP.
  • Cut a piece of string around a meter long.

    Add 4 red seed beads at the middle of this string and crisscross both ends of the string through the last added bead. (remember to balance out both ends of the string so that they are of the same length)
Step 2:
  • Take the left (blue) end of the string, add on 1 red bead, 2 silver white beads, 1 red bead. Cross the other end of the string through the last added red bead.

    Continue to pass the blue string (the string pointing down) through the red bead from step 1 - shown where the blue arrow is coming out from.

Step 3:
  • Take the top (black) end of the string, add on 2 silver white beads, 1 red bead, crisscross the other end (blue) through the last added red bead (shown where the blue arrow is coming out of).

    Continue to pass the left (black) string through a bead from step 1 (shown where the black arrow is coming out of).
Step 4:
  • Take the right (blue) end of the string, add on 2 silver white beads, 1 red bead, criss cross the other end (black) through the last added red bead (shown where the black arrow is coming out of).
