Welcome to Day 4 of the 7-day series! I’m giving you seven days of frugal & Easy Christmas decorations. If this is your first time here, be sure to check out the previous day’s posts where I used paper, clay and faux flowers to decorate my Christmas tree.
7 Days Of Frugal & Easy Christmas Decorations. Christmas Décor That You Can Make From Materials That You Probably Already Have In Your Home.
Today we are looking at wood, and more specifically wood beads to decorate with. There are a lot of tutorials for wood bead garlands floating around on Pinterest – but you need a lot of beads to make a garland. I only had a couple lying around, so I made some ornaments.
Wood Bead Christmas Ornaments
The wood beads I had on hand was coloured and in different colours, and I thought it would look better if I painted them. A couple of layers of spray paint did the trick – remember to do a couple of thin coats, rather than one thick coat. If you have the beads in a natural finish, you can leave them as is.
Then I just thread them onto burlap ribbon I had, made a loop at the top, and they were ready for the tree! It is so easy, and these Wood Bead Christmas Ornaments will work well with a rustic Christmas tree. You can make these longer to add some lengthy ornaments to your tree.
Where else can you use wood to decorate for Christmas
- Make a wood bead garland to use on your tree or mantle.
- Make wood-slice ornaments – you can stamp or paint snowflakes on them, or make a Jesse Tree as my friend Elizabeth at A Well Purposed Woman did.
- Use larger wood slices as candle plates or for serving food on.
- Make a Christmas Pallet Sign as my friend Sara from The Inspired Decorator did.
- Build mini trees from scrap pieces of wood.
As with the other materials, the possibilities with wood are endless! Please let me know in the comments below if you have any other ideas for wood ornaments; I would love to hear from you!
