Beaded Ceramic Ornament

Skill Level: All levels

Try this fun, inventive activity next time you’re holiday shopping: Peruse craft stores and dollar stores for ceramic ornaments that can be decorated. Look for ones with a flat side where you can place kids' artwork, recycled cards, or decorative papers.

Giving them a magical-beaded look is easy! Bringing them to life is easy. Use double-sided tape, decorative threads, and clear Diamond Beadlets. You can make one ornament in less than an hour, and the result - it will look like it came from a high-end boutique!

Materials needed:

  • ceramic ornament from a craft store
  • two pieces of 4" x 6" Treasure Tape
  • recycled cards, kids' artwork, or decorative paper
  • Diamond Beadlets
  • Kreinik Tapestry #12 Braid in colors to match your design
  • shallow pan or tray

Instructions:

  1. Cut your design to fit the blank area on the ornament that you'll be decorating.
  2. Peel off the red liner on one piece of Treasure Tape, and lay your design on the sticky area. Take another piece of Treasure Tape, peel off the white liner, then lay this sticky tape on top of your design.
  3. Cut out your design, peel off the white backing on the back of your design, then lay it on your ceramic ornament. Press to smooth out any bubbles.
  4. Remove the red liner on the top of your design; you are now ready to begin decorating.
  5. Decorate your design with the Tapestry #12 Braid as desired. You can also add buttons or sequins.
  6. When decorating is complete, lay the ornament in a shallow pan or tray and cover all remaining sticky areas with the Diamond Beadlets.
