January 28, 2016 Time Flies! Part 2, The Beaded Paw Print Ornaments

I'll post some of my other beading and crafts in another update, but I did want to post these ornaments that I made... I used my paw print pattern and made a bunch of paw prints in size 10/0s Delicas and then used various sizes of seed beads for the rest. I do not have a pattern for the ornament. I am not sure how to go about doing a pattern for that except for step by step photos and I don't have the time or patience for that. I originally shared a pic of each of them on Facebook and Instagram and thought I'd better get a Blog post out and document it.


The first one I ended up sending out to my friend in California, just a surprise, a little something to say hello and Merry Christmas! She's a dog lover like myself and advocate of dog adoption. The second one is slightly different because of course, while making one, I had some thoughts of what I'd like to try next. I sent that one to my cousin, I hadn't been able to get out there and see her in a very long time, it was like sending her a hug via the U.S.P.S. And the third one was a combination of the two. I have other ideas, but Christmas came too quick and I ran out of time. Perhaps I will do some more in the future. the pink seemed to get the most attention, although I love the color of the black and white. Thankfully I didn't get any trash talk about the black and white not being in the Christmas spirit.


Anyway, I'd love to hear your thoughts!
