Need a little something to add to your home made stockings or glue to your packages instead of bows. I have to admit though it is not one of my original ideas but it is so easy and cute I just had to share.
Take large rick rack (found in fabric stores and some craft stores) and measure 13 points and cut. With quilting or button thread start at the top of the first point and put your needle through that point and all 13 points. After going through the thirteenth point pull tight to gather, pull your thread to the back and knot but do not cut. Put your needle back through the center and string four white beads. Carry your needle back down through the center and tighten, knot and cut.
If you do not sew, you can make this using a glue gun. It just takes longer.
