Simple Kid Made Christmas Ornament
There it something so special about kid-made ornaments. Like most kids, mine love blessing me with simple ornaments that they made. So much so that I have an entire tree decorated with their handiwork. I am one of those crazy people that loves to have a lit and decorated tree in every room. I know a little over board for most, but I love it! These simple Beaded Twig Christmas Ornaments have a special spot on the tree. Right next to the pompom candy cane and the glittered juice lid.
I fell in love with the Twiggy Trees from Happy Hooligans last year. Make sure to check them out, they are absolutely adorable and so simple to create. I could not resist making our own Twig Ornaments.
We found a number of “y” shaped branches in our back yard that worked perfectly as the base of our ornament. I helped the kids cut the branches so that all we were left with was a simple 4″ “v” shape.

They simply stringed the beads on the wire and then wrapped it around the “v” shaped twig. It really does not get any more simple than that. I find that it is easier for the kids to work with wire than with string when beading. However, string or yarn would work great too.
I love that the kids left a little bit of wire showing. The part that took the kids the most time was stinging the beads, but even that was quick. I showed the girls how to make a quick loop with the wire and a bead to create a simple hanger.
