Beaded Bell Ornament
This entire beaded bell ornament is made out of
wire, and a little ribbon and a few jingle bells. It takes some
patience to thread all the seed beads on, but kids love to do this
part. Then, an adult can help for the later steps. This delicate
ornament adds a lot of sparkle to the tree.
silver, or any color of choice,
package of seed beads
- Beading wire
for hanging (I used red)
- 2 small jingle bells
piece of ribbon for bow (I used
- Scissors or wire cutters
seed beads on the beading wire until you have about a 2 foot length of
wire, full of seed beads. At the ends, secure the wire by knotting or
wrapping the wire several times around the last seed bead.
wrapping your length of wire back and forth to form rows, approximately
13 rows. The first row should be about one inch in length, then have
each row get a little longer until the last row is about 2.5 inches. It
will look funny and won’t stay together, but once you get
past step 3 it really begins to take shape
two lengths of wire, about 6 inches each. Take one wire, and begin on
one side. Thread the wire through the last seed bead on each end of the
row. This will hold this entire side together. Wrap the wire, or knot
it, to keep it in place and cut off the excess. Then, repeat the
process with the other wire on the other side. You should now have a
two jingle bells through another small piece of wire, and wrap the wire
around the bottom middle of the bell. Add a cord for hanging and a
ribbon tied in a bow at the top
