Upcycled Beaded Christmas Tree Craft

Upcycled Beaded Christmas Tree Craft

Christmas is my favorite season of the year. I love decking my halls with all sorts of decorations and crafts. I am especially fond of homemade decorations, and I quite enjoy using old materials to fashion something new to display. My kiddos and I have previously made snowmen with upcycled socks and empty puff containers. I have also used old glass baby food jars to make my own snow globes. My kids love those plastic bead necklaces that accumulate around my house from parades and other events. The only problem is that my children are often rough with the cheap necklaces, meaning the strings inside end up breaking sooner than later. To put the broken jewelry to good use, I used my hot glue gun to make a cute little beaded Christmas tree that looks absolutely adorable on my mantle or in the center of my dining room table.

Materials

Instructions

  1. Cut any intact beaded necklaces into single long strands.
  2. Use the hot glue to adhere the necklaces around the Christmas tree.
  3. Secure the beads every few inches.
  4. Display the upcycled beaded Christmas tree craft.
