As this pattern has been quite popular on my Instagram account ( you can see my account here), here is the grid and the reference of the colours of Miyuki delicas 11/0 that I have used.
This diagram is made mainly by using the brick stitch decreasing technique at the beginning of the row and at the end of the row.
You can find the details of the brick stitch techniques in my beaded ginko leaf post.
Also here is another pattern of baby owls I have done in brick stitch.
You can even make two of them to create an original collar brooch by following this other DIY.

So what can you do with these pretty beaded Christmas trees?
1. Christmas tree ornament
You can turn them in an ornament for your Christmas tree by simply adding a golden thread loop going through the top bead.
You can also transform it in a beautiful pendant by adding two jump rings to the two top beads. Cut a chain in two and fix the ends of the chain in each jump ring using pliers as shown in my beaded ginko leaf tutorial.
Turn it into a brooch that you can wear on your jumpers this winter. That’s my preferred option!
Here is how to do:
For this, you just need to buy a brooch pin and some jewellery glue.
Center the brooch pin at the back of your beadwork after applying the glue.
Let the glue dry for at least 2 hours and you are done!
I hope you liked this tutorial.
