Beaded Ornaments

Beaded Ornaments

How we did it:

Materials List

  1. pipe cleaners - assorted colors
  2. ribbon - assorted colors
  3. beads - tri-beads, assorted colors
  4. scissors
  1. Gather your materials. 

  2. Thread beads onto a pipe cleaner. We alternated between red and white beads to make a candy cane.

  3. Continue threading on beads until ¾ of the pipe cleaner is filled.

  4. Cut both ends of the pipe cleaner so that they’re about a half inch long.

  5. Fold each end of the pipe cleaner and stick them into the beads on either end to keep the beads in place. Then, shape your candy cane! 

  6. Tip!

    Candy canes are made for hanging on trees with their little “hook” at the top. For other ornament shapes, try tying a piece of ribbon to the top! 

  7. You just made a candy cane ornament! What else can you make using the same technique?
