DIRECTIONS:

Both of our candles were created by using beading pins to "spear" each bead onto the candle.
1. SNOWFLAKE DESIGN:
a. Measure the candle vertically to determine the overall desired size of
the snowflake.
b. Use a small leftover piece of foam core board to do a "dry run" of the design
before spearing it into the actual candle.
c. Start with the very center bead of the design. Because we wanted a 6-point
snowflake, we added six beads in a circle around the center point.
d. Continue adding beads one by one, working out from the center and making each
point of the snowflake identical. Because you are doing a dry run first, you can make
changes until you achieve your perfect snowflake.
e. When happy with the design, determine the center point of the candle and
place the first beads, then the beads around it, transferring them from the foam core to
the candle.

2. TASSLE DESIGN:
a. Start by cutting lengths of ox brass chain: 3/4", 1", 1-1/8", 4-1/2" and 5".
b. Create dangles by sliding a small 3mm round bead onto an ox brass headpin and
forming a simple loop. Repeat 11 times with an assortment of 2-3mm silver and ox
brass beads to create 12 total dangles.
c. Attach these dangles to the .75", 1" and 11/8" lengths of chain, and attach all three
lengths of chain to a silver eye-shaped connector using a jump ring. Repeat so that
there are four identical eye-shaped connectors with three dangles each.
d. To the open loop of each eye-shaped connector, add an ox brass connector
e. By looking down on the top of the candle from above, determine where the four equidistant points are (i.e. North, South, East and West) Using beading pins, "spear" the top loop of the ox brass connector to each of these points.
f. Add chain to connect all four points together.
g. To the ox brass connector, add your 4-1/2" length of ox brass chain to the top loop
using ox brass jump rings.
h. Add the 5" lengths of chain to the bottom loops.

3. DECORATIVE TOPS OF THE CYLINDERS:
a. We added W' satin ribbon to the tops of both cylinders using double-sided tape.
Next, we created beaded elastic "bracelets" to encircle the top.
b. Cut a length of elastic cording 6" longer than the circumference of the glass
cylinder. String on beads in a pleasing pattern. We also used chain, stringing it onto
the string between every third and fourth bead.
c. Test the length of the string of beads; they should fit tightly onto the cylinder. Finish by tying a surgeon's knot, dropping a dab of glue on the knot, trimming the ends, and hiding the ends inside one of the beads for a professional look.
