There’s nothing like a handmade gift for Christmas. Taking the time to craft something with your hands tells the recipient that you really care. Not to mention, they’ll have a one of a kind piece because no two handmade crafts are ever alike.
In an effort to help you create thoughtful and unique presents for your friends and family, I thought I’d compile a list of the most popular beading patterns for Christmas from The Bead Club Lounge.
All of these detailed tutorials are written in English with step-by-step photos.
5 Beading Patterns for Christmas
Do you remember the pinwheel? It was a child’s toy with colorful vanes on a stick that you watched blow in the wind. Ah… simple times.
Well, this pattern uses three different colors of SuperDuo beads and they swirl around one another in a way that reminds me of a pinwheel.

The Pinwheel Ornament pattern is definitely the most popular Christmas beading pattern in The Bead Club Lounge shop. It’s racked up quite a few 5-star reviews on Etsy too. This tutorial is suitable for all skill levels.
Christmas Wreath Ornament
This is a recent addition to the shop but even so, it has quickly become a favorite.
To create this pattern, you’ll use St Petersburg Stitch — a technique that isn’t used often enough, in my humble opinion. You’ll need some seed beads in various sizes, 3mm beads and a bicone for the sweet bow detail.
This tutorial is appropriate for all skill levels.
Starry Nights Earrings
You can’t deny that stars are a popular symbol at Christmas time so it’s only appropriate that I add a beaded star tutorial to this list, right?
All you’ll need to make these adorable star earrings are 6mm Bugle beads and some seed beads. This Right-Angle Weave tutorial is recommended for intermediate beaders but it’s a pretty simple project so even if you’re a beginner, don’t be afraid of this one.
SuperDuo Snowflake Ornament
I don’t get snow where I live so I bring the snow to me through beads.
To create the SuperDuo snowflake ornament, you’ll need some SuperDuo beads, as well as, size 11 and 8 seed beads.
This is another bead-weaving tutorial that’s great for all skill levels.
Five-Pointed Star Ornament
This Peyote Stitch beading pattern is recommended for intermediate skill levels.
It’s a seed bead tutorial and you’ll need two colors of size 11 Delica beads. I love using Delicas for Peyote beading projects because they fit so snugly together. They really make the final piece look good.
Use these ornament patterns to make beaded earrings, pendants or maybe even a fun box topper when wrapping gifts.
Give these beading patterns for Christmas a try and shower your friends and family with the gift of your handmade creations this holiday season.
