Chunky Christmas Bead Bracelet

This year, make Christmas jewelry crafts that truly stand out from the crowd. Use chunky red, white and green beads to create a cool and festive pattern. Wear your Chunky Christmas Bead Bracelet all year long so you never lose the holiday spirit.

Chunky Christmas Bead Bracelet


  • 12” waxed linen
  • Scissors
  • Clasp
  • 6 white rectangular beads
  • 4 red round beads
  • 5 green square beads


  1. Cut 12” waxed linen.
  2. Tie a double knot to one end of the string to one clasp.
  3. String on the first bead (white).
  4. Loop string through the first bead to secure in place about 1” or less away from the clasp.
  5. Add remaining beads. The pattern used in this video: White (1st bead) - Green - White - Red - Green - Red - White - Green - White - Red - Green - Red - White - Green - White.
  6. After adding the last bead (white), tighten beads and loop through the string around the white bead to secure the beads in place. This will keep the beads from sliding around when wearing.
  7. Add the other end of the clasp and tie with a double knot.


  • Add a dab of glue to the knots tied around the clasps to secure in place.
  • Adjust the length of the bracelet by adding more beads or by adjusting the distance between the end beads and the clasp.
  • If using 22 gauge wire instead of string, twist wire around the clasp to secure in place.

What a great bracelet to let you kids make for their friends for Christmas gifts. All girls love their jewelry and with this tutorial and bonus video anyone can make it.These green and red and white beads are great to give it that Christmas feel but if you change the color of beads can be worn anytime. I have never made a bracelet with a toggle because I did not measure the person to receive its wrist. Why is the toggle not touching the beads instead of being so far away? Great gift.
