It has become very popular to use strings of wood beads in vignettes around the home.  Whether they are draped over a stack of books, falling out of a decorative bowl, or wrapped around the neck of a large glass jar, these bead garlands add texture and movement to any display.  You've likely seen them being used in your favorite blogs, magazines, or even the Pottery Barn catalog.

While shopping at a consignment store last week, I found a bracelet made out of walnut stained wood beads and a few colorful triangle shaped beads.  It was made of three separate strands held together with a metal chain.  Honestly, it is hard to imagine how anyone could have worn this mass of beads on their wrist.

But the minute that I saw it hanging on the jewelry wall for less than $3, I knew the bracelet could be turned into a beautiful strand of beads for decorating in my home.


And while I'm sure you can't find this exact bracelet at a thrift store near you, this project could be made using any beaded jewelry or wood beads from the craft store.


It is an easy DIY that will add style to your decor without investing a lot of time or money.  And for those of you who think you don't possess any crafting skills, this is a project even you can tackle.

HOW TO MAKE A DECORATIVE WOOD BEAD GARLAND


SUPPLIES YOU'LL NEED

  • wood beads (These rosewood beads are similar to what I've used here. but you can find all different shapes, sizes, and colors on Amazon in bulk.)
  • Glue or needle (optional)


My project started by taking the wood beads off the thin string that they were on.

Then I began stringing the beads onto the thin jute twine.  Since I wasn't sure how long my garland would end up using my limited number of beads, I didn't bother cutting a length of jute from the roll.  You can make your garland as long or as short as you'd like, however.

The holes in my beads were wide enough for the jute to easily pass through, but you may want to use a needle or add some glue to the end of your twine and allow it to dry so that the strands don't separate as the jute goes through the beads.

After stringing on my final bead, I tied a double knot in both ends of the jute.  A little space was left between the end beads and the knot so that there is enough give in the string to be able to fold and drape the garland.

A few minutes time was all that was needed to create something that can be used in so many decorative ways throughout the home.  While you can find them online already made, it is an inexpensive project to do all on your own.  And depending on the color and shape of the beads you choose, a beaded garland is something that can be used in any style of home.
