I've featured a number of beautiful beadwork ornament projects before for hanging on Christmas trees(see links below). This time, I have selected the designs which are mantelpiece or table decorations.

First up are the beaded gnomes by Greek designer, Theodora of ZiaLolaBeadsIt. She actually has 3 different gnome designs so far with the cutest of names. I am just showing you two of them - above an below. She is a talented designer whose work I have featured before

Also by Theodora is the cute penguin design tutorial which she calls Sig. Luigi Penguini!

This gorgeous Santa's Sleigh beading tutorial is by Italian designer, Veronica of LeBdiBerenice. Love the use of rivolis in the sled runners! Do check out her store for other unique designs.  I featured her unusual beaded fan before

I can see this train ornament in Christmas colors adorning a little one's room!  The tutorial is by UK bead artist, ThreadABead.  There are many other super Christmas ornaments in her store. I have featured her work a few times before.

You can also get just the train engine tutorial (below) from ThreadABead as well as the caboose (not shown).

....or the tutorial for a longer carriage (there are two styles available)!  You can make the train as long as you want!

This fabulous tutorial for a set of Santa, Mrs Claus and Elf matryoshka or traditional Russian nesting dolls is by British designer, Carol Webb, of BeadedPerfectly. Carol has many other Christmas themed designs.
