Where To Buy Mini Wooden Beads

The hardest part of this craft is finding wooden beads that you like. 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:

  • 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.

Steps: How to Make Mini Birch Bead Wreath Ornaments

  1. Cut a piece of floral wire about 30 cm (1 foot) long.
  2. Thread the 9 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 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.

These wreath ornaments are a lovely little craft to do in the days leading up to Christmas. A friend of mine made a variation of this craft with her kids using pipe cleaners instead of floral wire (much easier to work with!). However you decide to make these wreath ornaments, they’ll make a lovely addition to your holiday decor.
