Today we are looking at the video that inspired a beaded icicle frenzy. How could you not love these gorgeous, sparkly and easy to make ornaments?! These beaded icicles have been showing up over and over in our online beading community Facebook group. VIB is a lively community of beading enthusiasts. We had lots of posts from community members sharing their beautiful icicles. You can use any combination of beads and Soft Flex Craft Wire colors to make these your own.
We have enjoyed how every designer puts there own spin on the design. We wanted to show off a couple. If you would like to make your own beaded icicle ornament, all you need is a selection of beads, a simple set of tools and and Craft Wire.
