DIY | Simple Bead Garland
Now that we are officially into the new year, its time for the Christmas decorations to come down. What a bummer! The house always seems so boring and dull once you take away the tinsel and baubles, so this year, instead of taking away all the fun, I am merely swapping it out for something a little more simple and a little less ‘seasonal’. These beaded garlands are super cheap and only take a few minutes to make, which is perfect, because I already spent all my ‘decorating patience’ on taking down my beloved Christmas decorations…
All you need is some plain wooden beads and bakers twine and of course some strong tape or pins to secure it all once you’re done.
Cut a long length of thread (long enough to string across your chosen area, plus an extra metre. Thread three beads onto the string and push to the centre of the string. Tie off a large knot at either end of the beads, securing the beads from moving along the string. Thread another three beads onto the string and line up around 15-20cm from the first group. Tie off as you did previously and repeat along both sides of the string until you have filled it completely. String up and secure with strong hold tape or some push pins. Too Easy!
