How to Make a Beaded Spiral Ornament Before Christmas

For those of you who might have some days off before Christmas and still want to keep busy with holiday crafting, you'll love making these spiral ornaments.

They're surprisingly easy to make and they look like something that could be store-bought. In my opinion, anyway.
