All you need for these pretty and simple ornaments, is beading wire (or other thin flexible wire) and sparkly beads. We used 28 gauge beading wire which is thin and very bendy. If you want a sturdier ornament you could use a lower gauge wire. We used inexpensive plastic beads from the craft store this time, but I have also made them with faceted glass beads.

We had fun sharing this craft with our homeschool group after practicing Christmas carols yesterday.
