Christmas Bauble Project

Hi everyone - Melody here. Today I have the perfect last minute Christmas project! These beautiful beaded baubles have been around for ages but are such a fun Christmas craft idea. 

Although simple to make these do take a bit of time to complete but what a great way to keep little fingers occupied – and they will look beautiful on the tree!


All you need is some ribbon, foam balls, a box of plain silver pins, sequins and some beautiful beads! Although this is not an activity for younger children it is certainly something that can entertain older children who like to create.       

The beads are threaded onto the pins, followed by the sequin which you then push into the foam ball - repeat ... several hundred times and you have some truly unique and lovely Christmas ornaments.


To begin, I attach the ribbon which will be the hanger using about four pins to ensure it stays in place and then work outwards from there. 


You can use all the same colour sequin or a variety of colours and the same goes for the beads! Seed beads are great for a uniform pattern all over or you can use a range of different bead shapes depending on the look you are after.       

This multicoloured bauble features a range of different shape glass faceted, bugle and seed beads with a range of sequins – it is just a riot of colour and quite eclectic by design.

This red bauble features red, silver and clear glass seed beads with only two shapes of red sequin and is a much more classic style.

The main idea is to have fun whilst you bead and play around and create something you like!

And what’s not to love about that! Put your feet up, have a cuppa and get creating! Have a wonderful holiday season - and as always ... happy beading!
