Decorating your tree on a budget? Try these DIY Beaded Garland Ornaments. These are perfect Christmas crafts for the kids, and they’re so affordable. My daughter picked up different strands of beaded garland, clear ornaments, and snowflake stickers at the dollar store. For these ornaments, we used gold and silver beaded garland. We removed the larger beads from the strand and cut the smaller beads into one, two, and three-inch pieces. We used several different sizes of garland to fill each bulb. Finally, we glued complimentary snowflake designs on each bulb for the finished look.
DIY Garland Ornaments Tutorial
- clear plastic ornaments, 6 large or 12 small
- 1 strand of large gold beaded garland
- 2 or 3 of silver beaded garland, different sizes
- snowflake stickers with gold and silver trim (optional)
STEP 1: Remove and separate the large gold beads. Cut the strands of silver beads into one, two, and three-inch pieces.
STEP 2: Remove the top from each ornament. Fill the ornament with two to four gold beads, and three to four strands of the silver beads. Replace the top of the ornament. Place two snowflake stickers on each ornament.
