Homemade Handmade Christmas

These Christmas baubles were all hand beaded with sequins and pins by me. I have a Christmas tradition. I bead Christmas baubles for a select group of friends every year.


Each bauble is 15 centimetres in diameter and contain hundreds of sequins, varying in number depending upon the complexity of the pattern and the type of sequins I use. Depending upon the colour of the sequin, I will use either a gold or a silver pin to attach it to the bauble.


These baubles are smaller than some others I do, however because they can have complex patterns which starts from the inside and are worked outwards in ever larger circles, each bauble takes approximately 1 to 2 1/2 hours per side.


It is however, a labour of love which I do to pass the time throughout the year.


This year the FFF+ Group have decided to have a weekly challenge called “Snap Happy”. A different theme chosen by a member of the group each week, and the image is to be posted on the Monday of the week.


This week the theme, “homemade” was chosen by Laszlo, Laszlo Papinot.


I thought my homemade, handmade Christmas baubles suited the theme very well.
