Little Christmas Trees Necklace

Posted on Nov 8, 2009 in Paper Bead Creations | 1 comment

Christmas is just around the corner, and this afternoon as I was cleaning out the closet in my garage where all my Christmas trimmings are kept, I found Christmas wrappers maybe from 5 years ago.  Some of them are not even big enough to wrap something.  Immediately, paper beads shaped like Christmas trees came to mind and here is the finished necklace.  I wire wrapped it into gros grain ribbon and threaded it into polyester chain.  I can almost imagine the Victorian ladies sitting in the drawing room rolling paper into paper beads.  The swarovski crystal just added a little sparkle into it.


I cut the Christmas wrapping into strips, they’re just perfect for this project because you can cut them into long strips, otherwise I would have to join two pages together to come up with 30 inch long strips of paper.



The metal paper bead roller was just perfect for making this cone shaped beads available at our online shop: Aubrey’s Beads

  1. Great idea! I passed it along (with a link) on website. Even if crafters don’t want to do a whole necklace, these as “dangles” and added to gift tags and cards would be great.
