Christmas Star Candle Holder Instructions
Designed by Artbeads

Dress up your holiday table or mantel with this adorable candlestick holder. In a few minutes you can take a plain candle stick and make it a gift-quality centerpiece.

Step one: Cut a length of Elasticity .8mm to approximately 11 inches. Put one end in a Bead Stopper and begin stringing your beads in a random pattern. We grouped several of the fire polished beads together, then separated with the bicones and druks. After you have strung about nine inches of beads, tie a square knot with the two ends of the string. Add a dot of glue to the knot and allow it to dry.

Step two: Attach the Swarovski crystal star pendant to a sterling silver open jump ring and add it to the strand of beads. Now just wrap the design around a candlestick and you have a wonderful focal point for your room.
