You Bead to Make These Ornaments for Christmas

Similar to some of our other DIY crafts in this month’s collection, these wood bead macrame ornaments would be a great project to make with friends at a holiday gathering. Or if you have older kids, they might also like crafting these with you. Just grab your favorite macrame cord colors, put on a holiday music playlist, and enjoy some cozy craft time at home!

In addition to crafting these wood bead macrame ornaments as stocking stuffers or gift toppers, they are also small and light enough to hang on our crepe paper pine branches. As always, we’d love to see your version of these ornaments and how you decorate with them, so be sure to share photos on our crafters community page or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia.
