Kids Christmas Tree Ornaments

I can't wait to try this with my kiddos this weekend! We are getting ready for Christmas and the first Saturday of December is when we decorate the house and the tree.  My kids always like to make some new ornaments for the tree and these are going to be so fun!

Here's what you need:

Ribbon about 12 inches or so per tree
Beads  - about 10 8 to 10mm beads and 2 smaller seed beads

Thread your needle ensuring that the thread is double and add one seed bead.  Add one pearl bead then go through the ribbon about 1/4 inch before one end. add another pearl bead.  Take the ribbon about an inch to the right of the bead and loop it back  and thread through the needle again, as shown in the picture leaving the loop on the side.  Thread another bead and make another 1 inch loop with the ribbon on the left side.  Continue threading beads and ribbon gradually making you loops smaller and smaller as you reach the top of your tree.  Finish off with one last pearl and seed bead and make a knot at the top and bottom of the tree.  Trim ends at the bottom and make a loop with the remaining thread at the top to hang the ornament on the tree or where ever you would like.

So Cute and So Fun!
