Learn how to make your own wood bead garland in just a few minutes. A great budget friendly farmhouse home decor project! This post may contain affiliate links.
I’ve been seeing adorable wood bead garlands showing up on some of my most favorite Instagram accounts lately. I love this trend – it brings neutral texture and interest to your space.
As much as I LOVE buying from Etsy sellers and supporting their businesses, I figured I could pretty easily make this project myself. It took less than 10 minutes and cost me $16 for two strands.
Wood bead garland supplies:
- Wood beads (I used these – they’re the perfect size!)
- Optional: yarn, extra cloth scraps
Honestly? Easiest process ever. Just loop your bead on the twine at the beginning so it doesn’t slip off, and then string all of your beads on! You could have your kids help you with this project!
You could add a tassel with anything you have around the house – I personally like this one because it’s all neutral. I used some leftover yarn and some pieces I cut up from an old drop cloth.
I made 2 strands with 50 beads each, so they’re about 4 feet long each.
One of the strands has a tassel on the end an one of the other ones has loops with the twine.
And hey, if you don’t want to make one, there’s no judgement here! You can find some beautiful handmade wood bead garlands here too.

Love making this garland from wooden beads that I’v had for 21 yrs. They were my mama’s beads when she was still living and made macromade plant hangers, purses and owels. So glad I saved her beads and she would be proud that I have put them to use and they are back in style. 21yrs today she left this world for a better place.
