Beaded Christmas Ornament Kits
Make Your Own Treasured Keepsake with Beaded Christmas Ornament Kits
Handmade beaded Christmas ornaments are a fabulous gift to give to just about anyone.
My own Christmas tree is loaded with Christmas tree ornaments that have been given to me over the years. I have ornaments from my dear grandmother. Since she is no longer with me, I cherish them more now than I did the day I received them.
I have keepsake ornaments that my parents gave to me and beautiful handmade beaded ornaments that my mother made for me when I was still a child.
I have handmade ornaments from my children. Now that they are grown, it is a walk in the past to touch the ornaments those precious little hands made.
Giving Christmas ornaments as Christmas gifts has become a family tradition in our home.
Why not make you own beaded Christmas ornaments and start a new family tradition today?

Beaded Ornament Handmade by My Mother
This is the ornament that my mother made for me when I was a little girl. It is approximately 40 years old. It is one of my greatest treasures.
In my minds eye, I can still see my mom sitting at the kitchen table, placing each bead, each sequin in just the right place to make this lovely keepsake.
An Ornament I Made for Our Son
I made this spider ornament for my son 22 years ago.
To this day, our tree is not completely finished until he comes home and hangs the spider on the tree.
This Was A Gift I Made for Our Daughter
I chose this ornament for my daughter because her favorite color is purple.
However, there is another meaning. Purple is a combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, therefore purple is considered to be the ideal color.
Thus, an ideal beaded ornament for an ideal daughter!
I Made Each of Our Children This Ornament
Ornament Kits or Instruction Books
I personally prefer the ornament kits because they come prepackaged with everything needed to complete a beaded ornament, except the craft glue.
However, sometimes a kit is not available in a specific color or design. Then I pull out my trusty books and buy the supplies required separately.
