For my July Pinterest-inspired project, I chose to do some beading. I currently have 217 beading projects pinned, which is the most pins I have on any of my boards. So my choice was based on that bit of data, along with the fact that I needed to make a small ornament for a gift.
I found this cute little beaded star that I made in one afternoon. It's called Starlight and it was designed by Deborah Roberti at AroundTheBeadingTable.com. Once again, I found everything I needed in my bead stash and you know how happy that makes me.
This is a good beginner/intermediate beading project. Around The Beading Table has such good illustrated instructions that someone who has minimal beading experience could make this pretty star. Check them out. They have lots of different free tutorials for all kinds of things - bracelets, necklaces, earrings and more. Have some fun looking through all they have to offer!
