Simple Red Bead Ornament

We did it! We've reached the end! Today is Day 12 of 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments. Phew! I've had a blast doing this series (even if it has pushed me to my creative limits...), and I hope y'all have enjoyed it and are leaving with lots of inspiration for handmade ornaments. There are 144 in all, which is absolutely nuts.  I'm excited to see your handmade ornaments too. Link party is at the bottom of this post!
You only need a few supplies for today's red bead ornament:

  • Styrofoam ball*
  • Hot glue
  • Red beads
  • Ornament topper (not pictured - you can see it in later photos!)

I picked up these red bead strands at Lowe's (I think?) a few years ago, and they've made appearances in various Christmas decor and projects. They're one of the few RED Christmas items I have, which is kind of hilarious since red is one of the traditional colors. My decor skews toward green, metallics and glass. You'll see that in my Christmas home tour post, which will be up the Monday after Thanksgiving!

Anyway, onto the ornament...it's really very simple to make. Wrap the beads around the styrofoam ball, hot gluing small sections as you move around. I started in the middle and then did one side at a time.

Here's the first half done:

And then the whole thing. I snagged an extra ornament topper I had and stuck it into the styrofoam so I would have a way to hang this little guy. Doesn't it look like it was made for it?

All done! See how easy that was?

Check out the other ornaments from these lovely bloggers and then link up your own at the bottom of the post (link party will open up at 8am EST)!

    1. Just finished your book and reading through this blog! My husband and I plan to head out for a year of travel in a couple of years and I’d like to blog. In the meantime, I have a sort of friends and family blog about camping in Colorado. It isn’t hosted and I use free wordpress. I’d like to transform it into something lots more professional and public. So, my question is–should I just scratch it and start over? Sounds like it is hard to move content and change a name? Because I’m giving tips on where to camp I think I may need to re-visit some of the older locations anyway. Will it actually disappear so that people will only find the new one? Finally, about how long did it take before your blog began earning an income? What exactly did you do–seek out advertisers? Or did they find you? questions to ask your girlfriend websites to visit when bored how to tell someone you love them free movie streaming sites how to get on the deep web
