An Example of How to Add Beads to A Prepackaged Cross Stitch Kit
It would be a sheer joy to create and embellish this beautiful cross stitch kit with beads!
There are so many options for embellishing this gorgeous cross stitch picture. After studying it for some time, I would recommend adding black seed beads to the teddy bear’s eyes. Plus, I would add clear beads to the purple sleeves and the matching ribbon on the hat.
Another option would be to add orange or clear seed beads to the center of the pumpkin’s eyes.
It is best to choose to embellish either the pumpkin or the bear. I would not embellish both since the beads are used to draw attention to a specific image.
The key to beautiful picture beading is to decide where you wish to draw attention. If this picture is for Halloween, I would opt for the pumpkin. If it is for autumn, I would bead the teddy bear.
