Seed Bead Ornament

I got this idea from an ornament I pinned a while back and have been meaning to try.  Luckily, I had a bag of small seed beads leftover from another project in my art box and so I dug those out along with some glue and another one of yesterday's round glass ornaments:

First up, take the top off of the ornament and coat the entire glass ball in glue...

Then, stick the glue-coated-ornament into your beads...

Once the ornament is coated, you may need to spot-fill any gaps by dropping a few beads on where needed.  Once you're done, put the top of the ornament back on, let the whole thing dry, and then hang up:

I guess I could call this another "3 Ingredient Ornament"...how simple is this?? (Answer: pretty simple...my inspiration for this came from a 'Crafts with Kids' website.)  The jewel tones of these beads match yesterday's ornament, which I love, and it was a great way to use up some art supplies that have just been lying around.  We're a quarter of the way until Christmas...open up those advent calendars and stay homey!


  1. These are so pretty! What a fabulous idea! :)

  2. I'll bet these look fabulous with all the lights on the tree!

  3. I love all your ornaments, but I think this is my favorite. The texture and the colors are so fun!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
