Here’s a list of beautiful beaded Christmas ornament patterns so you can express your own personal style during the holidays.
If you go by Andy William’s popular Christmas song, the most wonderful time of the year is almost here.
Time to start shopping for gifts and decorating your home. It’s always nice when you can incorporate a personal touch in your decorations. One simple way to do that is to make your own ornaments.
I’m going to share some DIY beaded Christmas ornament patterns with you. There are a mix of free and paid patterns, videos and PDF beading tutorials.
There’s definitely something for every skill level. Some of these tutorials are very clearly for more experienced beaders but they were so incredible that I couldn’t help sharing. So, if you’re up for a challenge, you can take on one of those. I’ll make sure to point them out so you can make that decision.

If you’ve been wondering how to make beaded ornaments for Christmas, this list should definitely help.
I have just started to collect beads to decorate Christmas baubles, & I’m in love with your patterns & tutorials! I would like to know how to get rid of static cling in my beads. I barely touch them & they cling to my fingers, & it’s hard to use them.
Thank you! I’m glad you’re enjoying the tutorials. I’ve never experienced static cling in my beads but I just did a Google search and it may be plastic that’s causing the problem. If you’re using a plastic bead tray or something like that, try working on another surface. I’m not sure if there’s something else that may be causing the issue. Hopefully that helps.
Lee Lapp says
Hi Vivian–I just now read your comment and wanted to make a suggestion about the static cling problem. Try wiping your hands with a fabric softener dryer sheet before working. Hope this helps.
It may be too dry in your home. A little humidity in the air will help. Easy fix is putting a bowl of water high up on the frig or shelf n just let evaporate. You’ll be surprised what a difference it makes
Diana Angelova says
Try to use dry soap and go over, just rub it on your working mat or surface. That should prevent static.
