On the 8th Day of Christmas: A Flurry of Ornaments

Ornaments abound today! We have a special bonus project from Melanie, scroll down to view the 8.5th day of the Christmas. It's a super sweet project indeed!
This ornament does double duty, once Christmas is over it can be converted to a ceiling fan pull.

Materials:

Long Art Bead
Disk Bead
Large Bali Silver Bead
Fan Pull Kit
Ribbon

Art beads from Humblebeads, all other materials were found at Hobby Lobby.

The fan pull kit comes with the fancy wire work already done, simply string on your beads and form a loop at the top. Add ribbon in desired length.

When the season is over, remove the ribbon and replace it with the ball and chain component from the ceiling fan pull kit. Ta da - a gift that lasts all year round!

*Please visit the links on the Ornament Thursday post to view a whole slew of ornamental craftiness.

I can't take credit for the wire work, the ceiling fan pull kits comes all fancy like that! Just string on the beads and you're good to go.

Thanks for the nice comments, this one is on my tree!!!
