To make this bead ornament, all you need are strings of beads from the Dollar store, bits of ribbon, and a tiny rose or holly sprig. Let your imagination flow.
Cut the beads into six to eight inch lengths (experiment). Hold two or three of the lengths of beads at the mid-point and place on one end of a hook (ornament hanger). Then glue your trims to that point. Your lengths of beads will hang down 3 or 4 inches.
You can make many of these for mere pennies. I've even made them with absolutely no trims. Easy, fast, frugal, and attractive. They make great little gifts."

This is a good idea, and I wish I'd thought of it myself. I had tons of those Mardi Gras beads that show up when you least expect them, and ended up giving them all to the kids to play with.
I like the way your ornament looks with the little red bow etc.
