Making your own Christmas ornaments for the tree is fun and this DIY Wood Bead Christmas Tree Ornament is so easy. The ornament is simple enough for children to make. I made these ornaments as part of the Deck the Homes Christmas Challenge. You can visit the other ornaments at the bottom of this post.
I love the strands of wooden beads that are used as decor in the home. These beads look beautiful laying in a bowl on a coffee table. I purchased two of the strands from HomeGoods for $20. After I purchased mine, I saw people on Instagram make these beads out of old beaded car seat covers found at thrift stores. I headed to the thrift store and found one. I returned the $20 beads immediately.
After making one cut, the beads came apart easily. There are plenty of beads to make a number of things. I make strands for decor, strands for the mantle, and ornaments. If you can not find a car seat cover, you can purchase wood beads.
Place one bead in the center of the wire.
Bend the wire around the bead. This bead will be the tree trunk.
Add an even amount of beads to each side making the Christmas tree ornament the size you desire.
Bend the wire to make a hook to hang on the tree. Cut the remaining piece of wire off.
