Easy beady tree decorations DIY



Is it just me, or does the weeks leading up to Christmas always seem to get shorter and shorter??
I always find that there is just not enough time in the month of December!
OK, so I , like most people have a long list of things to get done before the holidays, getting presents, , sorting out food and decorating the house....but I always try to enjoy myself a bit as well: Spending some quality time with friends and family + some fun activity's with Little Miss Moo...
So last Sunday we made some gingerbread cookies, lit the second candle of advent and spent an hour making these cute and easy beady Christmas tree decorations...


We used some wooden beads in various sizes from Hobbycraft and some string.
Some of the beads I painted with acrylic craft paint


I also spray painted some with Copper spray paint



Then me and little Miss Moo strung about 7-8 beads of different sizes up....


...in various combinations...


Making sure to create a loop at the top for hanging




Simple, but pretty....and very quick and easy to make!
So why don't you stop rushing around for a hour, make yourself a cup of tea, put some Christmassy music on and sit down with your children and make some of these...

These are the moments memories are made of...
