Easy Wooden Faith Beads Ornaments

 


Make some simple, yet lovely bead ornaments in just minutes using our new Faith-themed wood beads and a few basic craft supplies!  They make wonderful Christmas tree decor and gift toppers.


Materials:

- Blessed and Faith, Hope Love 16mm Wood Beads

- Coordinating solid color beads in 12 or 15mm size

- Florist wire, baker's twine or satin cord

- 1 inch Jingle bells

- Mini wired greenery

 


To make these sweet round ornaments we used 8 of our Blessed wood beads and 8 solid color 12mm beads for each one:
 

We strung them in alternating order along a 14 inch piece of florist wire: 
 

Once all beads were strung we pulled the tail end back through the first bead so the wire ends crossed inside it:
 

Then we wrapped each tail around the the main wire on either side of the first bead a few times and trimmed off the excess and tucked the open ends into the neighboring beads:
 
  
Next, we wrapped the mini wired greenery around to go in between the beads and did the same finishing with the tails.
 
 
Last, we cut a 12 inch piece of baker's twine and a jingle bell for each one:
 
 
Folded the twine in half and pulled the folded end through the bell:
 
 
Then wrapped the twine around the ornament and pulled through into a lark's knot and tied the open ends together.
 

We went with classic white and gold accents, but these wooden beads look great with any color combination:
 

To do the icicle style ornaments, we used one each of our Faith, Hope and Love wood beads, 3 solid red 15mm beads per ornament.  
 

 We cut a 14 inch length of baker's twine and strung the jingle bell to the center:
 

Then strung the beads through both tail ends.  Sometimes thicker twine or cord can be tricky to pull through bead holes, so we used some thin wire as a way to needle them through easily:

 
We knotted the twine just above the top bead and then again a few inches away to make a hanging loop.


Within minutes, some lovely little ornaments are ready to spread messages of inspiration.
