Hello! My name is Zizi and I'm 10 years old.
I love making decorations for my hearing aids.
Here I am going to teach you how to make your own decorations!

I will teach you to make dangling charm decorations, and also twisty decorations that go around the tubes.
Also, I will tell you how I use beads and stickers to decorate my aids.

Some of the decorations are easy to make, but some are difficult and you will need a grown-up to help you.

My mum and dad help me make my decorations for my hearing aids.

Tutorial - Difficult tube decorations

 Yesterday we went to the beadshop near where we live. We bought lots of things to make decorations for my hearing aids. My daddy wanted to make something to go on the tubes and he made these:

If you want to make something similar this is what you need: beads, wire and small pliers (and a stick or something the same thickness as your tube. We used a crochet stick).

You take a piece of wire, you thread it through the bead,

you twist the wire round itself several times,

then you add a new bead and start again.

my daddy put three beads in total. and when you have finished you wind the wire and clip off the end and tuck in the ends to make sure the are not spiky.

And this is what they look like.

Do you like them?


  1. Very nice, I love the idea, perhaps you have a small business in the making or just a little more spring in your step. Either way well done.

  2. Thank you for writing on my blog. I'm glad you like my decorations!

  3. My 2 month old daughter will be getting her first hearing aids next month and I was searching for some kind of embellishments or decorations to buy for them; then I ran across your blog! it never occurred to me to make something myself, and seeing how easy it is I can't wait to give it a try! thank you!

    1. Thank you for reading my blog! I hope you make lovely decorations for your daughter!
      Love Zizi
