These wood bead garlands are so easy to make and look so beautiful on any tree or mantel.
This year I’m going Scandinavian in the dining room and keeping my decor minimal. It’s been really refreshing as I seem to go all out each year and by the time Christmas comes, I’m exhausted. I really want to savour and enjoy the holidays this year and that includes sharing easy decor and styling tips. This DIY wood bead garland is perfect for simple Christmas decor.
Today I’m joining in a Christmas ornament blog tour for Seasonal Simplicity hosted by my friend Krista of The Happy Housie. Be sure to visit all the beautiful ornaments at the bottom of my post!

- beads – I bought 400 x 16 mm natural wood beads and 400 x 20 mm natural wood beads to make four garlands for my 7.5 foot tree
- hemp twine – the stiffness of the hemp twine made it easy to thread each bead through
How to Make wood bead garland
First, I took my twine and measured how much I would need for each garland so I had the perfect amount of beads for my tree. Instead of one long garland I made 4 garlands.
Knot towards the end about four times. I alternated with 16 mm and 20 mm beads. Because the hemp twine is stiff, it goes through each bead easily.
At first I forgot I had two separate sizes and started making the garland with one size but the two sizes really look nice together. It’s really subtle but gives a nice dimension to the beads.
When you have reached a few inches near the end of your twine, knot the end about four times and that’s it!
It’s really the easiest ornament you’ll ever make, right?!
It looks so good with the minimal decor I’ve put on my flocked tree this year.
