For our crafternoon Jessee generously provided all the flower beads, but if you search “stackable plastic flower beads” on eBay or Etsy there are a lot of places to choose from. We drew the faces on our wooden beads for heads (which were found at any craft supply store) but you can also find some really cute beads with faces already printed on them too. Or paint some on. Just remember that your wire needs to be thin enough to go back through your larger hand and feet beads, without being so thin that it easily slips back through once trimmed up. All of this of course depends on the size beads you use too. Our wire was some times a huge pain to try and push back through the beads a second time, but it did work-even if a little rough on our fingers.

    I love this! I have vivid memories of a old figure skater ornament on our tree when I was a child, which was made like these. My mom doesn’t remember it and doesn’t know what happened to it and in all my thrifting I’ve only ever seen 1 kind of similar to it. I will be making some of these!

    April, what a sweet memory! I bet you could totally turn on into a figure skater with the right kinds of beads, sounds really cute
