Making inexpensive Christmas ornaments is a fun family tradition. Every year, while I was growing up my family, spent a day making new Christmas ornaments together. We picked one style, and my mother gathered the supplies and let us make our own Christmas ornaments. This year will are making Wood Bead Christmas Ornaments.
I cherish those Christmastime memories and those ornaments, so I am continuing the tradition with my family.
I wanted to share some of the ornaments we will be making this year. These super easy DIY wooden bead ornaments are so easy the kids can make them too.

DIY Wood Bead Wreath Ornament
Let’s start by making a simple wood bead wreath.
Count out the number of wood beads (I used 18 of these beads). To make your wooden bead ornaments the same size, I always use the same size and amount of beads.
Please note if you would like a smaller wreath, you can use smaller beads or mix the sizes of beads for a whimsical wooden bead wreath.
Curve the wire in a circle (the wire is the wreath form), then add the beads while holding the opposite end of the wire.
After adding all the wood beads to the wire, push the other end through the first bead to form a wreath ring.
Pull both ends of the wire to form a tight circle.
Using needle-nose pliers, twist the ends of the wire together behind the first wood bead.
Cut the extra wire off with wire cutters, then use needle-nosed pliers to bend the wires to the backside of the wreath.
Finished Wood Ring
Please note that this wooden bead wreath can be used for home decor as well, such as an adorable napkin ring.
Decorating the Bead Ring
Make a bow using a ribbon (I used this ribbon) of your choice.
Add a little greenery or “mistletoe” to your wreath for a festive look.
Cut a piece of Baker’s twine (the one I used) for the hanger and loop it between the beads at the top of the wreath.
Knot the cord and cut to length.
Put a dot of hot glue on the Baker’s twine to attach the greenery.
Then add another dot of hot glue to attach the bow.

Last year I had a blast making all-new Christmas ornaments for a pencil tree in our dining room (see all the photos HERE). For the hoop and painted clear plastic ornaments, I used my Cricut Maker to cut out the vinyl decals; see how HERE.
One of my easiest Christmas ornaments t make are these embroidery hoop ornaments.
