Method 2: How to Make DIY Pearl Beads Balls

The second method is appropriate for Christmas tree decorations. These ornaments are beautiful and unique for your tree and any other place you generally place ornaments. To make these ornaments you will need:

  • Tacky glue
  • Pearls
  • Clear glass Christmas tree ornaments

Always insist on the Tacky glue. It is thick and holds the pearls onto the Christmas tree glass ornament during drying. Regular glue is too thin to hold them in place while your ornaments dry.

If you use the regular glue the pearls will keep on slipping off the glass ornament. Pearls can be found at any online jewelry store. Or, you can buy faux pearls at a craft store.

Making these Christmas ornaments is quite easy. Add a layer of the tacky glue on to the clear glass ornament. Once you have added the glue, the next thing is to stick the pearls onto it, and let them dry.

It is advisable to carry out this procedure in bits. Add glue on the glass ornament and stick the beads part by part. Please let the glue dry first before moving to the next part to avoid the position change of the pearls during handling.

Also, the pearls are to be glued to the glass in such a way that the holes in the side of the pearls are not faced upwards.

Pearl Sizes for Your DIY Pearl Christmas Ornaments

It is prudent to use pearls of the same size on any glass ornament to create the desired uniformity. This will help you to achieve that gorgeous look which you will cherish for Christmases to come. Therefore, pearl sizes matter here.

When it comes to the size of the glass ornaments, both large and small glass ornaments can be used together to create a unique look for your Christmas tree.

Add any decorations on the DIY pearl Christmas ornaments to suit your taste and style. Customize your ornaments as much as you can. You can create colorful, festive looking ornaments. Or, you can go with one or two colors for a simpler, elegant look.
