I love making personalized ornaments and with the holidays right around the corner, these beaded letters make the perfect Christmas ornament and gift tag.  You could even use them as place settings at your holiday table.  So many uses for these gorgeous Beaded Letter Ornaments!

Beaded Letter Ornaments

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own beaded letters:

  • 16 gauge wire
  • red beads
  • clear beads
  • needle nose pliers with cutter
  • ribbon

Step 1:  Cut your wire.  I cut mine to about 15 inches.  Some letters took more wire than others.

Step 2:  Using the pliers, curl up one end of the wire.

Step 3:  Start adding your beads.  After you’ve added about 1o inches of beads, start forming your letter to see how much more you need to add.

Step 4:  Curl the other end of the wire up and then form your letter all the way.


That’s it!  Your beaded letters are complete.  Add a little ribbon to make an ornament or gift tag.  I’m pretty sure that you need to make these Beaded Letter Ornaments for all your favorite people this Christmas.  I made one for my mom and for my nieces.  Now I need to make one for myself.  I think they also make a great teacher gift.

Not only are they easy to make but they look gorgeous hanging on the Christmas tree.

Who would you make one for?
