Christmas is a great time for creativity. In our house we love to have some family time and bring out the bead box and get creative with that. This year, we have made 3D presents, 3D Christmas baubles, pleated hearts, snowflakes, angels and now also these 3D Christmas tree tealight holders, all out of ironed beads. It’s so simple, yet amazing what you can create with these tiny plastic pieces.

If you are new to beads, I recommend getting the mixed box of beads from Ikea. It contains around 5-6000 beads, I think, and you will have lots to keep the kids happy for a long time. Ikea also sells the bead shapes for around 300rs for 4 pieces. They can be reused again and again. Both the beads and the bead shapes are available on Amazon.in

Even though real tea lights are beautiful (and nicer), use the electric LED ones for this Christmas tree. The real flame will melt the beads and all your hard work will be ruined. The electric tealighs have their uses though as they can also be kept in the kids’ rooms or on lower tables where kids or hair might come in the way. I got my electric tealights from amazon.in 

Iron the beads using parchment/baking paper with a medium-hot iron. The beads should stick well together and be strong, but not be so flat that they won’t fit together afterwards.

See my short video below to see how to assemble the Christmas tree. It can easily be taken apart as well and stored carefully for next year.

The templates for both trees are shown below here. You can also download the pdf copies here to print;  Large 3D Christmas tree and Small 3D Christmas tree 

Hope you have fun with this project. Merry Christmas

Ingredients

Directions

Step 1

Make both sides of the Christmas tree according to the template above. This is the large Christmas tree. You will need to use the square bead shape for this. If you only have one bead shape, make one side of the Christmas tree, iron it and then make the other one.

Step 2

This is the small Christmas tree. Both the right and the left sides are nearly the same -but please note the small adjustments at the bottom and top to make them fit together after ironing.

Step 3

Iron the beads using parchment/baking paper. Iron the beads on both sides to make them stronger but be careful to not make them too flat so they won't fit together afterwards.
