crafting with grandma - Bead Ornaments!

Beaded homemade Christmas Tree ornaments for kidsThis week where I live in West Michigan it is getting cold and is supposed to snow . . . personally, I'd rather only have snow December 22nd through December 28th, but at least we do not have lots of huge spiders here in West Michigan . . . fewer bugs is a benefit of cold, snowy winters.

So, with Christmas just over a month away, I thought I'd share with you a cute idea I saw on Pinterest for a fun beaded ornament you could have your grandchildren make . . . it is a fun craft which just needs beads and wire and would make great gifts for your grandchildren to give to teachers, neighbors, pastors, shut-ins . . . the list goes on! Plus, this fun ornament, while it will look amazing on a tree, after Christmas it could be hung in a window for a fun touch of sparkle!

Tomorrow when my grandsons are over, I'm going to swing by the store and get some wire and beads so we can give this a try! I'm leaning towards red, clear and blue beads - maybe gold if I can find some! What colors might you use if you make this craft? 

Follow this link for the directions, gather supplies and then the next time your grandchildren are over, enjoy making these pretty bead ornaments!
