Sweet Snowman Pendant Necklace

 
Hey Everyone,

Here in New Zealand we have a Summer Christmas, so..... no snow!
But our warm Kiwi Christmas' are pretty awesome too...

One year, Sean and I were in England and we got to experience a white Christmas...and I even got to build my very own snowman.

So, today I have a cute, easy and fun holiday inspired pendant tutorial for you. 

  What you need:

2 large beads, seed beads, 1 headpin, a length of jewelry wire, a chain and pliers.

Following the steps laid out in the pictures, so easy!

Thread the 2 large beads onto the headpin,
Bend back to 90 degrees, loop back around with the pliers
and wrap the end of the headpin around and secure it with a gentle squeeze with the pliers.
Thread the seed beads onto the jewelry wire and secure the ends, I just looped the wire back into the last bead on each end.
Mould the scarf around your finger then wrap it around the snowman's neck and press into place.

Add a chain...
 
And there you have a really cute little snowman necklace...

These would make awesome hand made gifts or even Christmas ornaments for a little tree.


I really hope you are inspired to give this tutorial a go.... 

Are you giving handmade gifts this year?

If so, we would love to hear your ideas and what you're making.
 

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook,


Take care and have a great week
