Pine cone

Pine cone

Small gift made from PRECIOSA Ripple™ and PRECIOSA Pip™ beads

You can collect pine cones which have fallen from the trees on a walk through the forest. If you don't have this opportunity, however, we have a tutorial for you on how to make pine cones from PRECIOSA Ripple™ and PRECIOSA Pip™ pressed beads.

You can use the finished product as a small gift, a gift decoration or an autumn arrangement. We wish you many hours of happy creative work.

Design: Helena Chmelíková

Step 10:
Create the sixth layer. It consists of 5 Rip from Step 2. Place these Rip in the gap between the Rip from the previous step. Wind each Rip separately. Place it by the stalk and wind each end of the wire in the opposite direction (fig. no. 12).

Step 11:
Create the seventh layer. It consists of 5 Rip from Step 2. Place these Rip in the gap between the Rip from the previous step. Wind each Rip separately. Place it by the stalk and wind each end of the wire in the opposite direction (fig. no. 12).

Step 12:
Create the eighth layer. It consists of 5 Rip from Step 2. Place these Rip in the gap between the Rip from the previous step. Wind each Rip separately. Place it by the stalk and wind each end of the wire in the opposite direction (fig. no. 12).
