Simple stars for Christmas

that's life! readers show you how craft and chic your decorations can be.

Robyn Doyle, Belimbla Park, NSW

'I started beading after visiting a craft show about six years ago,' says Robyn of her decoration. 'First I made sun-catchers, and then I graduated to these more delicate decorations. They are not as difficult as they look - you just need time and patience.'

Simple Stars

You will need:

  • 2 x 4-wire stars
  • assorted coloured beads (size-9 seed beads, crystal bicones and gold teardrops are ideal)
  • round-tip pliers
  • 26-28g wire to fix star shapes together
  • 15cm chain and a jump link for each star

To make:

  1. Work one star with seed beads in chosen colour. Turn the ends with round-tip pliers
  2. Work the second star, adding teardrops and bicones in any arrangement you like.
  3. Join the stars with wire and decorate the front with a bead to cover the wire. Secure chain with a jump link.
