You have probably seen these wood bead garlands around. I just love how neutral and fun they look. I started shopping around and found some really cute bead garlands. However, I knew they were so simple and couldn’t cost very much to make. I decided to just go for it. This is probably the easiest DIY I have EVER done.
I went to Jo-Ann’s craft store and bought three bags of wood beads. They come pre-drilled with holes through each round wood bead. You know I love my coupons. Jo-Ann’s was having a killer sale. I had two 50% off coupons and one 40% off coupon. I got all three bags for $11.69. I used some hemp/jute twine that I already had on hand. All I did was wrap tape around the end of the jute twine. This made it easy to pass through the wood beads. My three year old could have done this. Just put all three packages of beads on the twine.
After all the beads were on, I tied loops on each end. That is it! Super easy and so cute. I will probably move this all over the house. It even looks cute on my pumpkins. For now, it is draped on my coffee table. The loops at each end will make it easy to hang as garland at some point. This was so quick and fun I had to share.
