What you’ll need to make the Hanging Christmas Tree Ornaments
Start by cutting a length of the cotton and threading on a bead for the base – it’s best to use a bigger square shaped bead for this so that the smaller round beads can’t slide off the thread. If you’re not an expert beader don’t worry, just thread the cotton through the bead a few times and fasten off with a simple knot to secure it. Then fold a piece of ribbon – about 6cm long is ideal – and push the threaded needle up through the centre.
Add a bead and fold the ribbon back so that it’s a little narrower than the bottom fold to create the tree ‘branches’. Repeat until you’ve got a Christmas Tree shape and finish off with another bead for the top.

A mixture of red and green ribbons looks good and they’re always traditional Christmas colours. You can use scissors to trim up the ends of the ribbons easily and a bit of fabric glue like Fray Check to hold firmly.

Fasten a piece of cord or elastic yarn to the top of your decoration to form the loop to hang it up. A small gold or silver Jingle Bell can be used for the top of the tree as shown above. Photo via Stars Inspirations
