Christmas crafts can be hugely entertaining for kids in the lead up to 25th December. One of our favorite pastimes is making ornaments for the Christmas tree.

Previously my kids and I have made a clothespin Snowflake and some pipe cleaner Christmas ornaments

It is amazing what you can make using recycled or cheap craft sometimes. Beads are great for making ornaments, like my beaded candy canes.

Please follow my easy step by step Christmas tree ornament craft process below. Kids will need adult assistance to complete the bead jingle bell ornaments.
