Christmas Ornament Covers With Jump Rings

Yep, time for Christmas ornament covers, only this time, how about ones with jump rings?  Over the years I've made a ton of them with beads galore, but this year I decided to do something different.  Oh, I still have beads, but this year it's mostly made of jump rings!  I thought it would be something different and really unique.

Can You Open and Close a Jump Ring?

If you can open and close a jump ring and have a couple pairs of flat or chain nose pliers, a pair of round nose pliers and a wire cutter, you're in business.

I sometimes think that the hardest part about any project like this is just being able to open and close jump rings.  Ok, and then it's actually opening and closing a lot of rings....

But you know what I like about this one?  It's that I used jump rings in all different colors.  If you know me (or, have been following my posts), you know that I love color.  And this gave me a chance to indulge in my own personal rainbow.  (Like M&Ms or potato chips, I can't stop at just one, LOL.)

Here's what you will learn in this tutorial for making Christmas ornament covers.

  • The pattern and instructions for linking the rings to form a netting (easier than you probably think).
  • How to create the two different types of straight chains.
  • How to make beaded dangles.
  • Instructions for simple loops and wrapped loops.
  • Ideas for making your own variations!

Lots and lots of photos, most of them up-close-and-personal. I want to make sure you know exactly where that next ring needs to go!

If you plan to give one as a gift, you can pretty much be sure that it's something that your recipient doesn't have already, 'cause I made up the pattern myself.  🙂

Yes, I know the title says "Chain Maille Series" (because I do have a series of these tutorials), but like I said before, if you can open and close a jump ring, you're in business.

Anyway, through the magic of the internet, you're whisked to your checkout of $4 for this ebook tutorial.

Then you'll get download instructions for the tutorial. Keep in mind that this isn't a paper copy that gets delivered by snail-mail, but a PDF file that you get your hands on(so to speak) instantly.

Soooooo, whatcha waiting for?  As I write this, Christmas is still almost 2 months away.  It took me about....hmmm....4 or 5 hours to do this ornament, but that was also because I was taking photos at the same time!  So the next time through (because there will be a next time for me; I love ornament covers), I figure it will take me about 3 hours.  So, most of an afternoon for you to make yours.

Hope you enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
