I made this for TheSapphireMoon in the I love Buttons swap. She makes alot of trees so I figured she must like them. After I decided on a tree I found out that she LOVED rainbows so I decided I had to have a rainbow with the tree. Next challenge the hoop, a round hoop wasn't cutting it so I had to go with an oval... so here it is 12 x 20! (figuring out a box to ship is another story). I tried using buttons for the rainbow and I just didn't like how it looked. One of my co workers suggested beads... beads, I have a TON of beads so I went to work! There are 2500+ seed beads in this hoop in the rainbow and the tree, it is a little blingy and I like it! TSM did too!
thousands of beads
Here are some close ups that TSM took
I really enjoyed making this! Thanks for looking!
