I had many leftover wooden beads from a few of my DIY projects (see here) I completed over the holidays. Since this DIY has three of my favourite elements – easy, inexpensive and beautiful – I needed to tackle it and of course blog about it! ‘Tis the season to save some money post holidays, right?! I know I’ve done a ton of DIY posts as of late, I promise to start mixing it up with interior design and fashion real soon. In fact, I have been working on giving my son’s bedroom a much-needed refresh to add some personality since we moved in a little over a year ago. Hang tight, it’s coming next week and thanks for your patience!
- Wooden beads – pick your desired size or mix it up and use a few different sizes (Michaels)
- Twine or jute (your preference)
- Start by wrapping the jute or twine around the palm of your hand about twenty times (I like a thick tassle) and cut
- Remove from your palm and lay as a circle on the table (or floor)
- Loop another piece of twine towards the top of your circle creating a small loop and tie it off (circle twine around a few times for a nice think band on the tassle and tie off)
- Your tassle is Done! CONGRATS!
- Cut a long piece of twine – cut it a little longer that your desired garland length and tie it off
- Start threading wooden beads on jute
- Once you are good with the length of the garland, create another tassle, loop it on the end and tie it off
- Pour a glass of wine and give yourself a pat on the back for being super awesome and completing this!
- Now find a vase or jar and wrap this bad boy around it!
Note: I did find the white twine easier to thread the wooded beads through, the larger the bead you use the larger the hole.
