{Handmade Christmas Ornament No. 18}

Hey Y’all! This is Cassity from Remodelaholic. I am so excited to be here today! Can you believe we only have about 10 days til Christmas? TEN, 1 – 0… WOW! I think I am more excited than my daughter, this will be her first Christmas, that she really understands… and I am counting down the days.

For my homemade Christmas ornament, I thought I would show you how to make one of the simplest beaded ornaments you can make. This takes no skill (none whatsoever!), and is super fast… I tell you, the perfect homemade ornament!

IMG_8771 changed copyWhat you will need:

26 gauge wire (approximately 13” per ornament)

Small glass beads

Tools:

Wire cutting needle nose pliers

Let’s begin.

Step One:

Start by cutting your wire to length.

Depending on the final size you want. For a 3 1/2” tall finished ornament you will need approx. 13” of length. Start by wrapping the end of the wire around the tip of your needle nose pliers to create a loop. I did this twice.

Step Two:

Now you can begin to thread your beads on the wire.

Step Three:

When you have about 12 inches of strung beads, you need to leave yourself about 1/4 of an inch and wrap the excess around the base of the first loop. After you have wrapped it about 3 time, feel free to cut off the extra wire.

Step Four:

Now shape your ornament. Starting on the side without the extra bit of wire. (as you bend the shape you will slowly use up that 1/4 of an inch.

Add a hook and hang it in your tree or add it to a gift! DONE!
