Can y’all believe it is the beginning of November already! And here we are again getting into the swing of the holiday seasons. Now you may be wondering why I am posting about Christmas already and there are two reasons, one is because I just love Christmas and I am all for decorating early. (Sorry, not sorry) And two because I am joining other bloggers again this year as part of the At Home DIY Deck the Home Holiday Challenge. So for the next 6 weeks, we will be posting DIYs with a theme each week related to Christmas. So let’s get started! This week’s theme is Holiday Door Decor. Now for this project, I was racking my brain trying to figure out what I was going to create. Last year I did a creative holiday village out of a thrift store basket and this year I wanted to do something equally as creative. I am one that loves wreaths and I display plenty of them during the holidays but I wanted to create something unique that could be used on a door or anywhere in the home for the holidays. So I came up with this cute and easy wood beaded Christmas tree!
Materials Needed for Beaded Christmas Tree Door Decor
- Wooden beads, any size will do (I used 20mm)
- 12 gauge Craft wire
- Wood sticks or something similar
- Wire cutter
- Random Spray paints (I chose sage, white, copper and a dark grey)
- Needle-nose pliers
I chose to leave the wooden beads unpainted for the majority of the tree and just painted a handful of them to act as ornaments for the tree. You could paint all the beads if you desired.
Bend the craft wire in the shape of a Christmas tree. I then wrapped one end of the craft wire onto a side of the tree and strung beads on then cut and wrapped the opposite end onto the other side. I did this the entire way up the tree and added the “ornament” beads throughout.
I collected sticks from our yard and cut them down to create the tree trunk. Then I hot-glued these together and then used the hot glue to add them to the tree
Lastly was to figure out what I wanted to use for the star. I chose an off-white yarn and created a pom-pom using my fingers and then used the hot glue to attach this as well.
Now hop on over and check out all these other amazing holiday door ideas!
The colorful beads look so pretty in the tree and the pom pom is the perfect touch.
