Holiday Beading and Craft Tutorials

Whether you like to make all of your own holiday accessories and gifts, or just deck your halls with beads, you just can’t have too many Christmasy tutorials and project ideas! This year I found a few new inspirations that look totally do-able. These are my favorites.

Almost any sewing project can be tweaked with the addition of a few beads!
This easy and adorable ornament project from Bugs and Fishes offers a lot of great design opportunities.

I love the subtle color palette of this Christmas Chainon bracelet from
The technique uses two-hole SuperDuo beads to create a gorgeous, sparkly bangle. It would look just as good in a darker palette, or in crystal and blue!

Rivolis have been making a comeback this year, with new bezeling techniques and even some ready-made bezel components
creating new design ideas. This Merry and Bright earring project from could easily be converted to beadwork is you want to use up some of your size 15/o seed beads!

This Holiday Wire Wrap cuff tutorial from Beadaholique looks just like vintage wrapping paper!
The unique structure of the design allows the magatamas to show off their unique shape and still add a little texture.

This easy netted necklace project from and Preciosa is perfect for a snowflake palette!
The pip beads add a playful touch,you’re your favorite drops would work, too.

Need a festive way to use up some leftover accent beads?
This ribbon Christmas tree decoration from is super easy, and it could easily be scaled down
with smaller beads and ribbon. Perhaps even to earring size!

The right palette can turn just about any project into a festive masterpiece,
like this vintage button bracelet from
It would look great with a few crystals and maybe and extra charm or two!

If you love Delica patterns, this project will give you a chance to experiment with lots of colors! No matter what palette you use, this Festive Lights bracelet pattern from Beadaholique is sure to please.
