Candy treat ornament

Create a roll of candies, an ornament that is perfect to give as a thank you gift, in tubular, even-count peyote.

I designed this as a thank you for the everyday people, the “lifesavers,” who have helped me along my way.

1. Thread a needle with a comfortable length of thread. 

2. Pick up 48 color A cylinder beads, leaving a 10-in. (25cm) tail. Sew through the beads again to form a ring, and tie the working thread and tail with a square knot. Sew through the bead next to the knot to begin round 3 (PHOTO A and FIGURE 1, a-b)

CENTER PLASTIC FORM

1. Cut the circular, smooth surface from the center of a plastic water bottle. Hold it like a straw, and slice it lengthwise. 

2. Cut it 2 in. (5cm) long on the straight edge and 4 1⁄2 in. (11.4cm) wide on the curved edge. Round the corners to remove the sharp edges. 

3. Squeeze the plastic tube into a tight circle, and slide it into the ring of beads. Let it expand to create a snug fit. 

4. Tape the ends into place (PHOTO B). The plastic tube will provide support as you stitch the tubular peyote rounds.

TUBULAR PEYOTE STITCH SECTION
Step-up beads are shown with a • on the figures. 

1. Pick up an A, skip an A in the ring, and sew through the next (FIGURE 1, b–c). Pick up another A, skip an A in the ring, and sew through the next (c–d).

2. Repeat around until the last bead in this round has been added (FIGURE 2, a–b). Sew through the first bead added in this round to step up to begin the next round (b–c). 

3. Following the pattern in FIGURE 3, work tubular peyote stitch for rounds 4–62. Round 4 starts at the red bead marked with the •. Finish round 62 and step up to begin the end decrease.
