by craftbits (shellie wilson)

What you need

Glass Christmas ball
Needle
Thread
2 Colors of seed beads
Scissors

Instructions

STEP ONE: add at least 38 beads. Make sure this loop of beads when formed into a circle fits over the top part of your Christmas ball (where the hook attaches to put on tree).

STEP TWO: Using another colour of bead add four seed beads, then one of you main colours ,then four more of another colour and go into 5th bead. Repeat this step until you have little triangles all around. Make sure it fits the top of ball. After finishing a row make sure it fits your ball. If it does not fit the ball add more then four beads of another colour until it sits nice on your ball.

STEP THREE: Going back down the four seed beads come out at the one lonely colour at the bottom of the triangle. At this point repeat same as step two for second row of triangles.
Repeat this step as many times as you like until you like the length on your ball and your ready for some dangles in step four.

STEP FOUR: Adding dangles to your ball. Come out from the purple of last row. You can add any dangle of your choice. Here are just a few samples in a diagram but you can do what ever you like. These are very easy and once you have done one its great to design you own. Good luck!
