Deck the Halls With...Seed Beads!

Nov 29, 2011

Oh, yes, I'm one of those people that decorate the house with beads every holiday season. My beads bring me so much joy throughout the year that it only seems natural to incorporate them into my holiday decorating and gift-giving, too! Seed bead patterns are great for making beaded jewelry, but there are so many other items that you can make with them. This year, I've even got a set of intricately beaded ornaments to hang on the tree, and my gifts will each have a special little beaded package topper attached.

So if you're thinking about spreading a little holiday cheer with some seed bead patterns this year, now's the time to check out all the great ideas available in the Beading Daily Shop!


How easy is this? These festive little Jingle Bell Bracelets by Jamie Hogsett are sure to get you into the holiday spirit! These easy-to-make bracelets using real jingle bells and seed beads make great additions to holiday gifts. Or whip up a few for your last-minute holiday gift-giving needs!
Who could resist this sweet little Snowman Ornament by Jean Campbell? Use some basic jewelry-making skills to put him together and then whip up a quick peyote-stitch scarf in your favorite colors! Hang him on the tree or tie him to a holiday gift!
I love these Beaded Pinecones by Arlene Baker. There are so many ways to use these little beauties, and they work up so fast with just a little bit of wire and some seed beads! We use them on the wreath that we hang on the front door of the house, but you can also use them for pins, packages and holiday table settings. They also make great party favors or holiday beading projects when you get together for a little beading time with friends.
Of course, our holiday tree would not be complete with a couple of these festive Lacy And Loopy Christmas Ornaments by Sandi Graves. Change up the colors to match the rest of your holiday decor, or substitute your favorite crystal beads and drops in the fringe for a personal touch.
If you love beaded ornaments for your tree but just don't have the time to make a large, intricate seed bead project, these two Miniature Christmas Ornaments by Jerri Herrera are the perfect size! Make a tiny beaded ornament cover with just a few grams of your favorite seed beads, or make the little angel using some ribbon and bugle beads. The tiny angel ornament can also double as a special holiday pin for your winter coat!

And even better - for a limited time, all of the seed bead patters in the Beading Daily Shop are on sale! It's the perfect time to stock up on your favorite holiday seed bead patterns and get busy beading for the holidays.

Bead Happy,

mine is not a tradition as yet, but a volunteer group  I am involved with when I can,  called REVAMP , have been making seed bead stars which are placed on Xmas cards. They are then sold to raise money for the MERCY SHIPS, and local special pampering days,  where women after cancer treatment are given a hair and makeup makeover, as well as given a special piece of jewellery and flowers.

Their website is  www.revamp.org.au    do check them out, I am SOOO proud of them, marijke
