Claus-Approved Beaded Ornament

Santa knows best that Christmas doesn't come from a store, which is what makes this washi tape idea great for a handmade ornament. Add some homemade love to your holiday with this Claus-Approved Beaded Ornament. Both Grandma and Santa would be delighted to find that you've put your crafting skills to the test this Christmas. Simple materials make this a great Christmas craft idea for the holiday season. Although it looks intricate, this Claus-Approved Beaded Ornament is quite easy to make.

Primary TechniqueBeadwork




  • 1.5" Smoothfoam ball
  • Craft tape (also known as Japanese tape or washi tape in a green check)
  • Silver sequins
  • 8/0 red silver-lined beads
  • Gold sequin pins
  • 1/8" double-faced red satin ribbon
  • Eye pin
  • Westcott's titanium 4" non-stitck scissors
  • Awl, crewel embroidery needle or skewer


  1. Cut small pieces of craft tape. Stick them to the ball in a random order. Each piece of tape should be approximately 1/2" in length for best coverage.
  2. Use the awl to pierce a hole into the ball. Push the eye pin into the hole until the eye is flush with the surface of the ball.
  3. Pick up a bead and then a sequin with a sequin pin. Push into the ball. Scatter more sequins and beads around the ball. Don't worry about being precise. You want a balanced look - ie not a cluster of sequins on one side and none on the other.
  4. Cut four 6" pieces of ribbon. Hold three together and pull them through the eye until the ends meet. Tie a knot and then tie a bow.
  5. Thread the 4th ribbon through the eye. Tie a knot at the end to form a loop.

I love the look of washi tape because there are so many designs to pick from. i haven't found a place that sells them for an acceptable price at least not around where I live. I think I would really enjoy trying this craft out with different washi tape designs How many ornaments can be made from one roll of washi tape?
