kids' pony bead 3d ball ornaments

Pony bead ornaments are a great way for kids to help decorate the Christmas tree.
Step 1
Holding the ends of three red chenille stems together, thread a red pony bead onto all three and move it to the center of the stems.  
Step 2
Spread the chenille stems apart, creating a sunburst effect. Alternating white and red beads, thread seven of each color onto each of the six red chenille stems. 
Step 3
Form each stem into a half circle shape, to meet in the center. 
Step 4
Thread all six ends of the stems through alternating colors of two white pony beads and two red pony beads. Cinch the beads up close to the half circles.  
Step 5
Twist the excess chenille stems to make a tree hanger.
 
Note: To make the larger ball ornament: Follow the above directions, but add 24 pony beads on each of the six red chenille stems. Use the image as your pattern guide. 
Step 6
To make the jingle bell insert, thread five bells onto the center of one of the red chenille stems and twist the ends together right above the bells. Thread three pony beads onto the twisted bell chenille stems and add in the center of the ornament. Continue with Step 4 from the instructions above.
