Beaded Ornaments
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

Sometimes a simple idea, like shaping strands of beads into ornaments, is all it takes to check off most of the people on your child's gift list.

What you'll need

  • Pipe cleaners
  • Transparent craft beads (5- to 10-millimeter diameters)

Twist together the ends of two pipe cleaners for a longer strand, or attach short beaded lengths to add a striker to a bell or holly berries to a wreath.

How to make it

  1. Bend an end of a pipe cleaner into a 90-degree angle. Have your child thread on beads from the opposite end, stopping a half inch from the tip.

  2. Twist together the two ends, and the strand is ready to shape into a star, a candy cane, or another festive object.
