Today I have a fun Christmas craft for you. I’m going to show you how to make a Santa Claus Perler Bead Christmas Ornament. You don’t need much in the way of materials…. just some plastic lace and some perler beads and you are good to go. Follow the pattern in the tutorial and you will have a Santa Claus Christmas Ornament to hang on your tree in no time. So, let’s get started.
Check out our other Christmas Crafts.
3 Feet of Plastic Lace
Perler Beads (White, Red, Pink and Black)
Cut about 3 feet of plastic lace. Fold in half.
Tie a knot down a bit to leave a loop to hang as a decoration.
The top of Santa’s hat is white so place 2 white beads on right strand.
Since the beads are on the right strand… put the left strand thru the left side of the beads.
Now pull both strands outwards so that the beads move upwards in place.
It should look like this now.
The last time you strung the bead on the right side so this time you will string it on the left side. String 2 beads on the left side.
Since you strung the bead on the right side this time… you will put the right strand thru the right side of the beads.
Pull strands outwards to make the beads go up to the top.
You stranded the bead on the left last time, so this time you strand the bead on the right side. Put one red bead on the right strand.
Pull strands outwards to move red bead to top and center.
The above letters show you which side to thread the bead on. Just continue as I showed you and you will have a beautiful ornament.
Knot both laces.
There you have it…. you just finished making your Santa Claus Perler Bead Christmas Ornament. Now, go hang it up on your Christmas Tree for all to see.
