The motif can be used in a variety of ways – from a single star on a chain to dozens as a charm necklace. Make them in soft colors like these for understated day wear or in metallic beads for sparkling night-out looks. After a bit of practice you can make one in just a few minutes. Supplies: - seed beads – size 15 are shown, but this will scale to any size seed bead - beading thread – OO Nymo or as appropriate - beading needle - pointy scissors Thread the needle, work with the thread doubled. Stitch through them to make a loop, and then through them one more time. String on 5 more beads. Repeat that all the way around. Stitch up through 2 beads you added in the last row. Skip the third bead in that loop, and go through the remaining 2. Go through the bead in the original loop, then repeat this for all of the remaining points.

Here, I laid out a paper fin pattern on the top of the hood.

(I sewed this on the serger. For the teeth, I had strip of white terry. Finish both of the bottom edges. (if you don’t have a serger – just zig zag the edges.) Stemware Snow Globes.
