This is another quick and simple ornament to make. It looks nice too. If you use glass or crystal beads, your Christmas lights will really enhance the colours. This is a great classroom craft. The pipe cleaners make it easy for young children to make them too. I bet they would sell well at Christmas bazaars.

I have yet to meet a little kid that does not like to work with beads. This is an easy craft that kids of all ages can complete and have a finished product that will be proudly displayed on the family Christmas tree.

This is a wonderful project to complete with young kids. All of the new ornaments can be used to decorate the tree and those little ones will be proud of the ornaments they were able to make on their own.

All right! This is the kind of craft I really need for the grandkids! Since they're rather young (three and six), they will be enchanted to make something that works up so fast. I am making a trip to the craft store soon, too, so pipe cleaners and beads go on my list.
