I would like to show you a newer Christmas star in this post.  There the steps are coming 🙂

Firstly – I don’t really know the “stringing beads” language in English. If I wrote something wrong, please write to me! Thank you in anticipation!

Materials list: 50 cm wire, 6 and 8 mm acrylic bicone beads (5 Pcs 6 mm and 10 Pcs 8 mm), 3 mm wax beads (40 Pcs)

The colors of the finished creation are red and yellow. The second star is yellow and red 🙂

First, string 3 small red wax beads, after that cross the wire in the forth red beads. If I know well, the English name of this technique is “crossweave method”. We sometimes call it “cicázás” – I can’t translate it, maybe it can be translated “handlebar moustache”. It looks like a “handlebar moustache” – the children can record it easily 🙂 But now I will call it “crossweave method”, if you agree with this 🙂 The beads are setting to centre on the wire.

The next step – 1 Pc 6 mm yellow acrylic bicone bead and 4 Pcs red wax beads on one side of the wire.

String the first red bead with the same side of the wire. You have to make a circle.

These red beads have to look like the first red beads.

Repeat this step (1 Pc 6 mm yellow acrylic bicone bead and 4 Pcs red wax beads) twice over. After that string one-one yellow acrylic bicone beads both side of the wire, and string 1 Pc red wax bead with crossweave method.

This could be a little star, but I stringed longer. The next step is 1 Pc 8 mm yellow acrylic bicone bead with 4 Pcs red wax beads. String the first red wax bead again.

After string 1 Pc 8 mm yellow acrylic bicone bead to the same side of the wire and string the next pointed of the star (to the red wax bead).

One pointed is finished. Repeat these step (1 Pc 8 mm yellow acrylic bicone bead, 4 Pcs red wax beads and after 1 Pc 8 mm yellow acrylic bicone bead) three times. The closing is like the “small” star – one-one 8 mm yellow acrylic bicone beads both side of the wire, and string 1 Pc red wax bead with crossweave method.
