ThreadABead daily pattern Nutcracker Tube Ornament Pattern online at http://www.threadabead.com/4447/1/Nutcracker-Tube-Ornament-Pattern-Bead-Pattern
The Nutcracker tube ornament is a simple and cute idea! The Nutcracker design is beaded around a plastic hang tube (the ones which are a lot of beads such as delicas are sold in – you may have some lying around unused!). The ornament can be opened using the top cap and items placed inside and hung using the candy cane coloured hanging loop. So what should you put inside your tube? Well that's up to you! Here we have added 4 Jelly Belly bean sweets, but other sweets, letters, money or even beads will work! This Nutcracker Tube bead pattern is made using Japanese Miyuki size 11 Delica beads and round peyote is used. It is assumed the beader will be familiar round peyote, however full instructions are given. Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads. There are 12 colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 6.5 cm x 1.75 cm. Additionally 1 x 8mm emerald crystal and a Plastic Tube With Hang Cap 2 inches x 9/16 inch is also required (available from www.threadabead.com - our ref: 939) The bead pattern supplied is 11 pages and includes a colour chart of suggested delicas, a colour pattern and a numbered coloured pattern.
