You may have noticed my beaded ornament hangers in yesterday’s Christmas tree post.
I was inspired to make these when the folks over at Artbeads.com were kind enough to send me some of their beautiful glass beads free of charge*. This is an easy and quick way to add extra sparkle to some of your special ornaments. So today I’ll share a little tutorial with you.
~wire ornament hooks (or floral wire)
~needle-nose pliers (optional)
I found the longer hooks work best because obviously you can get more beads on there:
I had these crimping beads leftover from another project, so I used one as a stopper at the end of my hook. If you don’t have these, just put your hook on the ornament first so the beads don’t fall off the bottom.
Artbeads has a wonderful selection of glass beads, as well as all other different types of beads so you can really get creative with this project. It’s the perfect addition to my DIY Personalized Ornaments!
