Beaded Wreath Ornament

We made this Christmas wreath beaded ornament using a modified daisy chain technique.

My five year-old daughter is really into beading. Most seasons we create beaded ornaments to hang from the chandelier. This year, I thought she might be ready for the challenge of a simple bead-weaving technique. Since we are using pipe cleaners instead of wire or cord, it is even easier–no need to double-back through the beads.

Materials:

  • 36 green beads
  • 6 red beads
  • 2 green chenille stems
  • 1 red metallic chenille stem
  • fishing wire, thread, or metal hook to hang

Directions:

1. String 6 green beads.

2. Twist the stem back to make a loop of the beads.

3. Add a red bead and bring the stem across the middle of the loop.

4. Repeat until you have three loops/flowers with a red “berry” inside each.

5. Do the same with the remaining chenille stem to form another three loops/flowers.

6. Connect the two sections at one end.

7. Use the red metallic chenille stem to create a “bow”: Make a little loop and then twist. Make another little loop next to it, twist again.

8. Use the “bow” to connect the other two ends of the two green chenille stems together to complete the wreath.

Educational Connections:

  • History / Culture: Why do we bring evergreen boughs inside during Christmas? When and where did the tradition begin?
  • Mathematics: What is a six-sided shape called? What is 6 x 6 green beads?

    remove people from that service? Thank you!

  7. I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end?
    I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  8. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass favor.

  9. Hi, i think that i saw you visited my site thus i came to return the favor.Im attempting to find things to improve my website!I suppose its ok to use a few of your ideas!!

    Im impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog thats both equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, youve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few people are speaking intelligently about. Im very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.

  11. I was recommended this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by him as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble. Youre incredible! Thanks!
