A stylish white (and black) Christmas

Here's a stylish new design for Christmas, all decked out in Black and White with just a hint of silver. Because we want the originality to lie in the craft design itself, we're going to help you make these long table garlands in crystal beads that you can drape in between your glasses, as well as window garlands that are also made from beads, not to forget a Christmas 'picture frame' decoration in the Home deco style that's definitely striking to look at with its Black and white color scheme.Black and white Christmas table garland

First of all, here's the idea

Black and White table garland with pom ponsA table garland that combines the softness of the black pom pons in felt and the transparent, Silver and Black crystal bead Christmas design.

The designs are arranged along a long black waxed cotton cord: this cord is thread into a sharp embroidery needle with a large eye, which will enable you to thread on pom pons, round black beads and here and there, crystal shapes - stars, snowflakes or Christmas balls...
