This is one of the easiest ornaments to make and it is great for helping teach your kids fine motor skills. First start stringing beads onto a pipe cleaner.

You shouldn’t need too many beads to form a circle. But your goal in the end is to form a circle.

Then twist top to hold in place.

I needle felted some tiny balls for one wreath.

You can use anything tiny to decorate your wreaths with. I used tacky glue to add my tiny accessories.

I usually say all ages with most of my craft projects but there are some that the tiny tots (ages 3 and under) should not be doing because of the small pieces and this project is one of them. But you can still include ages 4-100. So get out a bucket of beads and create away. Happy crafting everyone.

    1. Easy crafts keep everyone happy. I have taught a lot of classes where the kids did tiny detail work. I always push for fine motor skills. THe schools here always cut back on being creative, so sad. Kids nowadays are starving for crayons, paints, pencils and just fun ways to express themselves. There are some schools here in our state that try not to encourage this and instead focus more and more on test results for reading and writing only.

        I find society in general has gone in the direction of “book smarts” my school projects were always colourful, i was more excited for the presentation of my projects then any of the info i retained long enough to get a good mark, the creativity stuck with me for life, i have my dad and nana to thank for it, they were always creating. As a young adult i did mostly crafts with the kids, i never thought i was an artist, when i discovered i was a crafter my world became a happier place. Its not for everyone but I agree young people should have the opportunity to discover the world of arts and crafts.

      2. They make me happy too. I think it’s fun sharing with others as well. It is nice knowing that I am not alone when it comes to making things. There are a lot of us out there in the world.

  3. I love these – they’re so cute and I loved the wool covered curtain rings you did earlier. I’m going to make some – probably finish in time for next Christmas!

    1. Thank you. You could probably do little Easter wreaths or Spring wreaths and have a head start on that. Christmas is my favorite time of the year, and it always goes by too fast for me.
