I found a few patterns for glass balls covered in beaded netting that were tempting, but a bit intimidating. A few years ago my sister made me this gorgeous beaded ornament and I remembered her saying how much work went into it.

In a strange turn of events, Steph bought nothing and I bought an assortment of beads and findings. After two evenings of work I completed this little beaded wreath.
I quite like it, have already made another bead purchase, and will no doubt be purchasing more beads in the weeks between now and Christmas.
The instructions to make this ornament are found at the Beading with Eden website.
