My boyfriend's siblings and their SOs are doing an ornament exchange for Christmas. This is the first I've done of this kind of beading, and I love the way it turned out!
I used this tutorial for inspiration: http://members.tripod.com/~Beadme/Ornament.htm
. The finished netting ended up fitting a 2" diameter ornament, not 3" as the tute advised ... must have used different sized beads than she did.
