All you will need is some twine and wood beads on How to Make a White Wood Bead Garland. There are many options when buying wood beads. Paint them in your favorite color or you can buy them pre painted. I like to use chalk paint for a matte finish. Here is my paint resource page, to help make your painting life easier. Its fun to add something to the end so I added a metal heart. Adding tassels is always cute as well and very popular .

To know how much twine you need. Measure however long you want the garland to be plus a half the length more for your knots. So if I am wanting my garland to be 44 inches long. My twine will be cut at 66 inches long. For more DIY project inspiration, take a look at my YouTube here.

To start I tie a big knot at the bottom leaving about one inch to attach my metal heart or tassel. I then string on a bead and tie a knot, then string on another bead. If you don’t want to keep tying knots you can add a large bead, then a smaller one in the middle and finish like this till the end. I used 1″ beads for this diy. Lastly I tie on my metal heart or any accessory you’d like.

  1. Hi, Rhonda! I just read your post and I can certainly tell you where to get the hearts. These are called “Milagros” and they are Mexican. We have them here. These are offerings one does to a saint, Jesus, the Virgin, etc. when requesting a favour. They come in different shapes and sizes. I love using them for clothing, art, jewelry and other stuff. Feel free to contact me directly on my email and I might be able to help you. Have a happy day!
    Oh! By the way, awesome post and art! 🙂

  2. I thought you did a beautiful job. How large are the beads? and how long is the
    garland. I’d like to possibly buy one if the length and size work.
