Fun kids crafts, bead wreath christmas decorations

We made these bead wreath decorations for our Christmas tree but you could also use them to make a mobile or just as pretty ornaments to hang on your wall any time of the year.

Bead threading projects are always fantastic to develop fine motor skills and perseverance in little ones. When making these decorations with my 2 yr old I was surprised by how easily she could thread the wire through the tiny 1mm holes in some of the beads, I think using stiff wire made it much easier.

Please remember to always supervise your little ones when using small loose parts like beads, as they can be a choking hazard.

If you love this project but don't have the materials, check out our fun kids CRAFTS KITS, our MEGA JEWELLERY & THREADING CRAFT BOX includes all the materials you need to make these BEAD WREATHS plus lots of other fun crafts.


  • A selection of beads
  • Wire
  • Items from the recycling bin like bottle tops and cardboard
  • Wire cutters


Cut a length of wire approximately 30-40cm long depending on how large you would like your wreaths to be. Fold the end of the wire to prevent beads from coming off and begin threading.

Leave approximately 10-15cm of wire and the end then twist the wire together to make a loop. Twist the ends of your wire together and make a hook shape.
