Everybody loves a good DIY. Today’s post is short and sweet, but super easy and fun!
Materials you’ll need:
- Wooden Beads: I used these and these
- Jute Twine or yarn (the twine is easier for threading)
- Scotch Tape
Step 1: Cut a length of twine slightly longer than you would like your garland to be (I used about 45 inches).
Step 2: Start threading your beads. I played around a little bit with my pattern. It doesn’t need to be perfect. Whatever floats your boat.
Tip: I wrapped a small piece of tape around the end of my twine to make it easier to thread through the beads. This was a game changer.
Step 3: Making tassels for the ends was pretty easy as well. I wrapped some twine around my hand about 8 times, until I got the thickness I wanted for my tassels. You could also do this with yarn if you would like softer tassels at the ends.
After I wrapped the twine around my hand, I took another piece of twine and wrapped it around one end and secured with a small knot. Cut the loops at the other end to finish off your tassel.
Step 5: Thread each end of your garland through the loop at the end of your tassel. You can knot your twine here or thread it back through the other beads. I did both.
Step 6: Clean up any ends and make sure both of your tassels are the same length by trimming if you need to.
Use your beaded garland as a finishing touch and unexpected surprise to any space in your home.
