Here are some projects that will help to bring the generations of beaders together in your family this year. I wouldn't recommend putting the beaded tea lights on your tree, but all the rest of these projects make nice tree ornaments as well as table top decorations.
Golden beaded pear - not difficult to make but a bit time-consuming (shown above). Can you picture a set of these in a bowl on the table or hanging from your tree?
Star, candycane, and wreath - easy to make beaded ornaments that kids will enjoy helping with.
Safety pin tea lights - I've seen lots of flag pins and bracelets made from beaded safety pins, but I've never seen tea lights before!
Fuse bead ornaments - another great project to do with the kids!
Beaded wire ornaments - look how many things you can do with wire stars!
