This kit makes 3 different braided wreath decorations. Materials are provided in red, green and silver so that you can mix and match them in different ways to create several different effects. Miracle beads are perfect for decorations because they have a special optical effect, which makes them seem to glow in certain light conditions. The braid is made using both cord and wire, before being embellished with seed beads and being finished off with charming oval end caps and organza ribbon.
It is recommended that you are able to braid accurately on the Prumihimo disk before starting the wreath because it can be difficult to reverse braid to correct mistakes. Cord and wire is provided so that the technique of working with wire can be learnt. This make this kit a true learning experience that goes much further than the 3 decorations!
The Prumihimo disk is not included with this kit, but can be purchased from this website. You will also need some glue, such as clear all-purpose glue or fabric glue. Wire cutters or strong scissors are also required. A weight is optional.
