If you’ve followed along with me on the blog for a while now, you know that I love using bead garland in my home decor, and, more times than not, I enjoy making it myself.  For example, it was fun making this summer bead garland with a full tutorial I shared with you just a few months ago.

I wanted this Christmas wood bead garland to be bright and happy yet keep with my colors for Christmas this year.  I enjoy using neutrals, greenery, and splashes of red, and you’ll pick up on that ratio in the pattern of the garland I am sharing today.

Let’s DIY some garland!

Threading the beads on twine

Instructions for Christmas wood bead garland:

  1. Pull out a very long piece of twine (@2x as long as you think your garland will be) but don’t cut it.
  2. Begin lacing the beads with the twine, creating whatever pattern you like! Protip: The twine will start to fray, and when it does, just cut a little off the end and keep threading. You can also tie a tiny knot, that can help too!
  3. Once you are happy with the length, it’s time to make and add the tassels.  See the photos above for how to make these tassels, or head over to Pinterest for tassel video tutorials.
  4. After you have the tassels tied on, you are done!

Tassel steps

There are so many ways you can style your festive garland for the holidays, including draping over a stack of books, wrapping around your tree, looping over a large glass jug full of winter greenery. 

How could you see using it in your home this Christmas? Happy holiday crafting!
