The Christmas season needs a little sparkle, and beaded Christmas ornaments are a great way to make your home really shine this December. Ornament crafts are a blast in general, but when you craft with beads, the possibilities are endless! You have thousands of shapes, sizes, textures, colors, and styles from which to choose. With the right beads, you can create a shimmering snowflake, a radiant angel, or a candy cane that looks good enough to eat.
