Hi, I'm Kimberly Seeherman, event design expert, and owner of Events by Fabulous. Today, I'm gonna show you how to string beads on a Christmas tree. I'm gonna show you how to create a beautiful pearl garland, and it's pretty simple and easy to do. Either you can go out and buy a pearl garland, some craft stores might have that, but if that's not an option for you, you can go online, you can buy very inexpensive pearl necklaces, one, two dollars a piece, and what I'm gonna show you how to do is actually take them apart and then glue them back together to create one giant strand. So that's really it, it's very simple, basically what we're gonna do is we're gonna take this necklace here, we're going to just cut it right in half, and then we're going to use our glue gun and actually glue the two edges together, and make sure that when you are gluing, you use a lot more glue than you think. You really want to create a strong bond between these two pearls. And there you have it. We have a beautiful pearl garland. Now I'm gonna show you how to put it on the tree. So you want to start really pretty much at the top, but not right at the top. Remember, you're gonna have usually a gorgeous star or another ornament at the top of the tree, so you want to start the pearl garland about a foot down from the top. And what I've done here this look is kind of a scalloped look you'll see, and it's a graduated scalloped look because you'll see that while I'm going around the tree stringing with the pearls, at each level the scallop gets slightly larger, and you create this very beautiful symmetrical look with graduated scallops. It's really elegant, it's super vintage, and the pearls just make it very glamorous and perfectly on theme for our vintage glam tree.
