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.

Lia ADD…II will use the essential oil blend to the wooden balls as I
am not sure if the fragrance will be effective with the cord covering on the wood ring.
Thank you Patricia Keane
Lia Just an FYI….you can apply essential oil to the wood ring and it will act as a passive diffuser for the fragrance oil.
I use the Plant Therapy website for my essential oil products. They had a product using this wood ring as a passive diffuser.
I am going to use their Christmas Tree essential oil blend on this project to hang on the tree.
Thank you ! Patricia Keane
That is such a great idea!! I might just bring that up in the Member Make.
