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.
- 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 (ours was from here)
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:
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.
