Christmas Crafternoon: Beaded Angel Ornament Video Tutorial

Hi there, this is Rachel from Beyond the Bead Jewelry. I am Sarah's sister and along with making jewelry with our mom, Nedra, I also sew for the Blue Susan Etsy shop. I am a new contributor to the Blue Susan Makes blog and am excited to bring you some fun tutorials during this holiday season!



In today's tutorial, you will learn how to make these beaded angel ornaments.


They are  fast to make and can easily be made in an afternoon. They make a lovely gift for family, friends, or neighbors.

Here's What You Need To Make One

Tools Needed: Flat-Nose Pliers, Round-Nose Pliers, Hook-Nose Pliers, Wire Cutters

For the Angel: (All of these items are available at Hobby Lobby, JoAnn, or dorabeads.com)
  • 1 Large bead for the Angel body - 1 to 1 1/2 inch tall works well
  • 1 Large, 2 inch wide Wing spacer bead
  • 1 large crystal or pearl for the head (mine is 1/2 inch wide)
  • 1 large Spacer bead for the crown/halo
  • 1 - 3 inch head pin. 
Here is our Video Tutorial
Thanks for watching! If you want to see some of our angel ornaments for inspiration, hop on over to our Beyond the Bead Jewelry Etsy Shop and take a look. 


If the video is not working for some reason, here is a quick picture collage of the step by step to give you an idea of what to do. It is way easier to understand from the video, however. 


Happy Making!
