Materials & Tools


A fine stringing needle, a 0.20 mm line, flatnosed pliers, scissors, an 8 cm diameter glass bauble


The following description can be used to create a net, into which a blown bauble is placed and then enclosed. Create two identical parts of the net and join them together.

Step 1

String 10x T with 3x R between each one. Tie both ends of the line and create a circle (figure no. 1). 


Step 2

Pass the line through the second hole of the last T. Then string 2x R, 1x T and 2x R and continue in the same way to the end of the row and pass the line through the first two added R and one Tonce again according to the illustration and start the stringing of the next row (figure no. 2). Add a total of 40x and 10x in this row. 


Step 3

Add one more R in each following row, but otherwise proceed in the same way as in the second row. Add 10x R between each of the individual T in the ninth row. 

Step 4

Create two nets according to this tutorial. Place them onto a glass Christmas bauble from the adjacent sides and join both halves in the same way as in the ninth row.
