Free Star Tutorial

Posted by Craft Cove from Churchill, Victoria, Australia • Published See Craft Cove's 3 projects »

  • Step 1

    Thread the fishing line onto the needle

  • Step 2

    Tie on a stopper bead. A stopper bead is a bead the same size or smaller than the smallest bead you are using. String through it twice to hold it in place.

  • Step 3

    Add 6 seed beads, 1 crystal and 1 seed bead.

  • Step 4

    Go back through the crystal, and pull tight.

  • Step 5

    String on another 6 seed beads, a crystal, and this time 4 seed beads.

    Step 6

    Go back through the first seed bead you strung on, through the same way you came from originally. Then back through the crystal.

  • Step 7

    Continue in this manner, adding 6 seed beads between each section, crystals next to each end, and ends alternating between a single seed bead, and a 4 seed bead circle.

  • Step 8

    This should form a zigzag pattern with the 4 bead circles on one end, and the single beads on the other, as in the diagram.

    Step 9

    Stop when you have 6 of each types of ends. 12 points all together.

  • Step 10

    The thread should now be coming out of the crystal, in readiness for the 6 seed bead centre. Now instead of starting a new 6 bead section, just string back through the first section, all the way through the first 6 seed beads, the crystal, and the end seed bead.

    Step 11

    ou should now have a rough circle. String through the next single seed bead, at the next point, then the next.

    Step 12

    Continue through them all. Then go through them all again.

  • Step 13

    Tie off, and thread through a few beads. Remove stopper bead, tie, and thread through a few beads.
