Last year, I saw this snowman ornament pattern at threadabead and made a mental not to try it. Believe it or not, I actually remembered!
I really like the way it turned out. The beads fit snugly over the ornament. There is no danger of the beadwork "slipping" a bit. The pattern was easy to follow and fun to do.
I love the attention to detail: the buttons, eyes, carrot nose (I used a bicone) and the hat.
This Santa ornament is a similar ornament (and my next project). Here's hoping I finish him before the real Santa makes an appearance.
