These days are just flying by.
Anyways, onto Blogmas day 5!
This one is for the children once again.
I’ve had these pinned since last year.
They’re pretty easy and can be used as Christmas tree décor or room décor for their rooms. There will be 3 posted so you can just move on from 1 to the next.
- Pipe Cleaners (Sparkly and Plain)
- Beads (Hair beads, solid and clear)
Tutorial #1 – Candy Cane Ornament
It’s from this website:
The instructions are pretty clear as well.
- Use red, green and white pipe cleaners
- Cut them in half
- Twist them together
- Bend the top to look like a candy cane
Tutorial #2 – Icicle Ornaments
Once again I found it on this site:
http://kid-craft-ideas.blogspot.com.es/2013/11/homemade-christmas-ornaments-for-kids.html ….. which then led to this site, http://happyhooligans.ca/icicle-ornaments/
- Thread the beads onto the sparkly pipe cleaners
- Leave some spaces between them
- Leave a tiny amount of pipe cleaner at the end to be bent in at the tops and bottoms of the beads
- Wrap the pipe cleaner around a pencil or bend it with your fingers to make it spiral..ly
- Thread some clear string through the top bead and put a knot at the top
Another child friendly craft
Tutorial #3 – Beaded Candy Cane Ornaments
I clicked the picture on Pinterest expecting to find a link but it said the link has expired so I will explain it. I do not know who to credit for this.
- Use the green pipe cleaner
- Cut it in half
- Alternate between threading solid red and white beads onto the pipe cleaner
- Leave a bit at the top and bottom and bend those ends in to help keep the beads on
- Bend your pipe cleaner to look like a candy cane
That is it.

I know The Angel Gabriel isn’t a church hymn but it was a favourite song of mine from Primary School.
