Where to buy mini wooden beads

The hardest part of this craft is finding wooden beads that you like for your ornament wreaths. I couldn’t find the right ones at the dollar store. Here are some different stores that stock natural wood round beads to choose from for your ornament wreath to stand out.

  • Micheals
  • Amazon
  • Dollar Tree

Just thread the beads onto the wire, bending the wire into a circle. Trim the extra wire and push the ends into one bead to hide them. Then tie a ribbon loop between two beads. Easy peasy! Detailed instructions are below.

How to make mini birch bead wreath Christmas ornaments

  1. Cut a piece of floral wire about 30 cm (1 foot) long.
  2. Thread the nine beads onto the middle of the piece of wire.
  3. Bend the wire so that the beads form a circle in the middle of the wire.
  4. Use the pliers to twist the ends of the wire together to affix the beads in a circle. The beads should be fairly tightly packed but leave a bit of space in the loop to fit the ribbon in.
  5. Cut off the extra wire ends. Leave a 1 cm length of twisted wire attached to the loop to keep the circle fastened.
  6. Use the pliers to push the twisted ends of the wire into a wooden bead to hide the connection.
  7. Tie some ribbon around the loop, threading it between any two beads in the wreath ornament.
