Wooden Beads Garland
(Shop this post at the bottom!)
I LOVE it when an interior trend lends itself to a DIY project! It’s even better when it is an easy and inexpensive DIY project! I mean, who doesn’t like saving money! I’ve been slowly updating my home after decluttering and organizing each space in my “Hot-Mess House Challenge!” Check out my “Linen Closet,” which was the first space I organized!
I’m trying to lighten each space by getting rid of stuff and brightening it up. I’ve been using a lot of light colors and natural textures to make this happen. I LOVE the look of wooden beads garland, but why buy when you can DIY! Luckily I didn’t need to buy any of the supplies to make my garlands, because I already had a bunch of wooden beads and baker’s twine left over from another project that I made! Score!
Making the wooden beads garland with tassels was a super easy and fun DIY! The possibilities are endless when it comes to the different sized wooden beads and colors of twine you can use!
The Details to DIY the Wooden Beads Garland:
- Wooden beads (small, medium, large)
- Baker’s twine
- Scissors (fabric scissors work best)
- Large sewing needle
Depending on how many wooden beads you have, I’d suggest stringing your garland before you cut the baker’s twine. That way you will know how much twine your beads will cover. I created a pattern using medium and large beads.
Leave several extra inches on both ends and cut the twine. Double (triple, etc.) knot the twine so that the beads do not fall off.
Wrap the twine around your hand to create the tassel. I wrapped the twine around my hand about 20 times. Then cut the twine in the middle of one end. This will take it from a circle to a line shape.
Place the center of the cut twine on one end of the extra twine from your wooden beads garland. Make sure you place it as close as possible to the wooden beads before you tie it on. You want the tassel as close to the wooden beads as possible. (Don’t go crazy over this, just get it somewhat close!) Tie the bunch of cut twine pieces together using the extra twine hanging on the garland. Double not it and try to twist it so that the knot will be on the under side of the tassel.
Next, fold the pieces of twine in half. Cut a piece of twine to wrap around the top of the tassel to bind it together. Wrap the twine around several times and tie it off.

Here is another garland that I made using extra large beads!
Don’t be afraid to DIY your own decor to save some money! It will look just as great and cost you way less! And if you aren’t up for a DIY, but want a wooden beads garland, scroll down to “Get The Look” section for a few different options!
