Learn how to make beautiful Japanese diamond ornaments in 5 sizes with this template set
Diamond ornaments are a feature in many of the Japanese Hishikazari hanging mobile ornaments - these ornaments are often created to bring good luck or to ward off bad luck.
The technique of wrapping threads around the shape is so similar to wrapping threads over buttons that anyone who has tried button making should find this very enjoyable.
This set contains 5 graduated clear acrylic templates to create diamonds in five sizes - 10mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm & 30mm. The pack also contains a keychain and and an acrylic & metal scoring tool (please note that the colours of these tools will vary).
You'll receive full instructions outlining not only the basic wrapping technique, but also a woven variation, as well as how to cover the shape with fabric. Ideas for finishing are also included.
All you need is card (we recomend a 250gsm or thereabouts), a bit of tape, and thread
