Beaded stars

Yesterday Little-N and I made a beaded star. This is a bigger version of the stars I make with smaller beads.

You need:
About 70cm of wire
About 45 beads

Step 1

Twist the end of the wire so that the beads do not fall off.
Thread 10 beads on the wire.

Thread the wire through the first bead to make a circle.

Step 2

Thread 4 beads on the wire, then thread the wire through the 4th bead again so that it makes a loop over the bead.

Step 3

Thread 3 beads on the wire.

Thread the wire through the 3rd bead on the ring made in step 1. This makes the first point of your star.
Continue with step 2 and 3 until you have 5 points.

To finish twist the the start and ending piece of wire together. Little-N added his star to a key ring.
