A tutorial for my Christmas Tree Brooch or Ornament. This brooch uses bead embroidery techniques with sequins, to make a statement brooch or fun ornament. Will suit intermediate bead weavers or bead embroiderers, or intermediate embroiderers looking to learn bead embroidery.

The thirteen page tutorial contains a full materials list, with suggestions for suppliers, and every step is fully illustrated with a detailed diagram showing thread paths etc, photos to show you what you are aiming for and every step is also written out clearly (in English). All of the different techniques used are covered in full, with tips as well as stepped out instructions, and you should finish this piece ready to use the techniques in your own designs.

The finished tree is 5.5cm wide and 7.5cm tall, but you can pick your own size if you'd like it to be bigger or smaller.

You will need:
Around 100 mixed size and shape sequins in 3 or 4 colours (for the ombre effect)
1g of size 15 seed beads, 1g of size 11 seed beads.
Brooch back
Bead backing in a colour to tone with your beadsBacking material - Ultrasuede or similar.
Strong Glue - I use E6000
Beadweaving needles, thread of your choice (but not Fireline or similar - they are awful for embroidery, way too stiff and you’ll want to match colours)

Please note that this listing is for a PDF tutorial, not a finished piece of beadwork, and not a kit - just the instructions. The tutorial will available through Etsy for you to download as a PDF as soon as possible after Etsy detects a cleared payment.

I also sell materials packs which contain the beads, sequins, backing, foundation and brooch back required to make this brooch, and for a limited time a PDF copy of this tutorial will be included with the packs for free! https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/747761614/materials-pack-for-christmas-tree-brooch?ref=shop_home_active_1

As a beader who designs and sells largely to support my own out of control bead buying habit, you may make from my tutorials to sell (in small quantities only) so you can buy lots more beads (and tutorials), but please ensure you give me full credit as designer.
Please do respect my rights as a designer and do not pass finished pieces off as your own design, teach the design, or reproduce this tutorial or the images in it in any way. Please see my FAQs for further details. Thank you!

I bought both the materials pack and the tutorial. Love this pattern - very easy bead embroidery; and the beads for the colorway I chose are simply gorgeous! Thank you!

Since I've made the tape measure I thought I might as well make the matching needle case. I love these patterns.

I bought this pattern because it was developed after the creation of the podcast bead from the CDBG group. I made the podcast bead and this is the first pattern I have found that uses it. It is challenging but not impossible. The important thing is to read the very detailed instructions several times and make sure you follow them. Sometimes my reading doesn’t translate correctly. Very good drawings to follow along with the instructions. My project has been started the second time and so far so good.
