This rustic DIY wood bead garland took only a few minutes to put together and can be used in so many different ways in your home decor.
This DIY wood bead garland only took about 10 minutes to make. I’m so excited to share quite possibly the easiest little project I’ve ever made.
The wood bead garland is part of another month of Simple Farmhouse Decor! On the first Sunday of the month, I’ve been sharing a simple DIY or craft with a signature farmhouse look.
I know it’s not the first Sunday of the month, but, there are so many other fun things planned for next week, that I had to push for a week early this month!
Over the past few months, I’ve completed so many fun projects. I absolutely love this little series I have going on here. Each farmhouse-style project only takes a few minutes, and a few dollars to complete.
If you’ve been following along, you know I love the simple look of natural wood. Check out my other DIY oversized wood bead garland here.
But, for this month, I also wanted to do a Christmas-y project. I couldn’t quite figure out how to marry the two until I came across a few DIY wood bead garland projects floating around Pinterest.
I knew I had to try it!
Step 1. Grab Supplies for DIY Wood Bead Garland
My kiddos and I hopped in the car to head to Michaels! Well, we didn’t make it through the front door. Let me tell you, the terrible 2’s have come a few months early. And they are quite terrible.
Later that evening, I snuck out of the house sans kiddos to head back to Michaels. Alone. It’s always a dangerous time.
I was so surprised at how many wood beads they had! I ended up getting 4 different-sized beads and used some extra twine I had left at home.
Supplies for DIY Wood Bead Garland:
Step 2. String Wood Beads onto Twine
And, you guys, this project is literally as easy as stringing beads onto twine.
You do (or technically don’t) have to come up with a pattern to follow. Below I showed the pattern I just randomly came up with.
I had most of the tiniest beads so I wanted to use more of them. Other than that, I just popped some beads on and went with it!
Step 3. Tie off the twine to finish
I continued until I ran out of one size of beads. Tie some knots at the ends to hold on to the last bead and a loop on either side to hold the garland onto hooks. And. That. Is. It.
How cute is it?!
Step 4. Hang the DIY Wood Bead Garland
I knew just where I wanted to put it. Hanging on the mantle with some faux garland I made (that I’ll share this week, too!). It’s a simple, farmhouse look.
The possibilities are endless!! You could use it as garland for your tree, wrapped around your banister, or just lying and snaked through decor on shelves.
This project was nice and simple and had such a big impact on our mantle. I simply love how quickly I was able to bring in some Christmas touches to our living room.
Have you started decorating for Christmas? Or still hanging on to fall? This DIY wood bead garland is the perfect baby step to start getting your home in the Christmas spirit.
I can’t wait for the next few weeks! Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I’m going to be smothering you with Christmas cheer. Be prepared 😉
