Make Your Own Treasured Keepsake with Beaded Christmas Ornament KitsHandmade beaded Christmas ornaments are a fabulous gift to give to just about anyone. My own Christmas tree is loaded with Christmas tree ornaments that have been given to me over the years. I have a whole collection of ornaments from my grandmother. Since she is no longer with me, I cherish them more now than I did the day I received them.
I have keepsake ornaments that my parents gave to me and beautiful handmade beaded ornaments that my mother made for me when I was still a child. I also have handmade ornaments from my children. Now that they are grown, it is a walk in the past to touch the ornaments those precious little hands made.
Giving Christmas ornaments as Christmas gifts has become a family tradition in our home. Why not make your own beaded Christmas ornaments and start a new family tradition today?
Beaded Ornament Handmade by My Mother
This is one of the ornaments that my mother made for me when I was a little girl. It is approximately 45 years old. It is one of my greatest treasures.
In my minds eye, I can still see my mom sitting at the kitchen table, placing each bead, each sequin in just the right place to make this lovely keepsake. Year after year, this ornament finds it's special place on our tree.
An Ornament I Made for Our SonI made this spider ornament for my son 22 years ago. Each year, regardless of when I decorate our Christmas tree, I hold the little spider aside for my son to add to the tree. To this day, our tree is not completely finished until he comes home and hangs the spider on the tree.
I made the spider long before the internet and computers became a household "utility". I have never gone back to write my own instructions online.
This Was A Gift I Made for Our DaughterI chose to make this ornament for my daughter because her favorite color is purple. However, there is another meaning behind the color choice. Purple is a combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, therefore purple is considered to be the ideal color. Thus, an ideal beaded ornament for an ideal daughter!
I Made This Ornament for Each of Our ChildrenIn addition to the ornaments I made with the individual child in mind, I have also made matching ornaments over the years for both of our children. The green carousel ornament is one that I made for both children.
Ornament Kits or Instruction BooksI personally prefer the ornament kits because they come prepackaged with everything needed to complete a beaded ornament, except the craft glue. However, sometimes a kit is not available in a specific color or design. Then I pull out my trusty books and buy the supplies required separately.
Either way, the gift of a handmade ornament is special to the recipient and will be a cherished treasure, just as the ones I have shared above, for decades to come.
Beaded Ornament KitsBecause of my on love for making beaded ornaments, I have several beaded ornament kits available in my own Ebay store. My inventory changes often simply because they sell out and additional kits are not always available from the suppliers.
Here are a few that I currently have in stock:
