wood bead snowman ornament

Add a handmade touch to your Christmas tree with this cute Wood Bead Snowman Ornament! Make one or make several and hang onto your tree. You can even make one to hang from a gift.
Step 1

First, paint a large and medium size wood bead with chalky paint. Let dry.
TIP: Add your beads to a skewer and lay it across a disposable cup to suspend your painted beads of your working surface to dry.

Step 2

Paint one large and two medium buttons with black satin paint. Let dry.

Step 3

Use the steel hole punch to add a larger hole through the middle of each wood button.

Step 4

Glue the two medium wood beads together, stacked on top of each other, then glue them to the top of the large wood button. Let dry.
TIP: Make sure to leave the hole punched in Step 3 free of glue so you can thread onto your cord.

Step 5

Cut a 16" [40.6 cm] piece of hemp cord.

Step 6

Fold the cord on half and at about 3" [7.6 cm] from the fold, tie an overhand knot.

Step 7

String button stack onto your cords, below the knot, then add the medium painted wood bead and finally the large painted wood bead. Tie several knots in the cord below the large bead.
TIP: To want the knot to be large enough that it will hold the snowman together. If needed, add a dab of glue to ensure a stronger hold.

Step 8

Trim the ends as desired.

Step 9

Use the back end of a bamboo skewer to make dots for eyes on the medium wood bead and for buttons down the front of the large bead.

Step 10

Use the pointed end of the skewer to make smaller dots for your snowman’s mouth.

Step 11

Glue a Tangerine crystal for your snowman’s nose, then glue two leaves with three small crystal berries to his hat. Let dry.
