A lot of handmade teacher gifts take a long time to make, not this one! Using a wood spool and paper template you can create your own little School Countdown in no time! Around the spool is two separate bands of beadwork with little windows in. Spin the bands around the spool and see the numbers change and count down or up to term-time!

On the band is a little school scene containing a yellow school bus and 2 school children, a boy and a girl holding an apple for teacher! The wood spool is finished with an ABC chalk board bead tube and a crystal apple, both enhanced with firepolished and delica beads in galvanized silver and chalk white.

Made using Even/Odd Count Peyote the spool takes around 2 hours to bead, making this pattern ideal for making little and thoughtful teacher gifts which can be used by them year after year.

As usual with ThreadABead featured patterns we give full detailed photographic instructions and in this pattern there are 49 detailed steps, making this pattern even suitable for beginners to beading.

Please note the pattern may not work with any other size and type of beads.

There are 16 delica colours in total and the finished beadwork is approximately 16.5cm x 2.5cm (including loop and fringe work)

Each bead pattern is mounted on a Wood Spool - Height 3.2cm x Width 2.1cm (Product Ref: 1943).

10 x 4mm Firepolished Crystal AB, 4 x 6mm Firepolished Crystal AB, 4 x 10mm Firepolished Crystal AB, 1 x 10mm Swarovski Siam AB Crystal, 1 x Wood Spool - Height 3.2cm x Width 2.1cm. are required for the loop and tassel.
