DIY Farmhouse Beaded Garland

I have been dying to get my hands on a strand of Farmhouse Beaded Garland but I wasn’t going to pay $20+ for some! So I took the plunge and went for it! For under $10 for 1 strand, I made my own. I decided to make step by step instructions for YOU to make your own as well!

I’m all about the Farmhouse style decor and this little accent piece was going to be a perfect way to tie in all the decor on my new Tiered Tray!
All in all, this took me about 25 minutes to complete and it turned out better than what I thought it would!

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
• Scissors
• Tape
• Paint & Paint Brush (optional)

These beads are the ones that I bought and used:

This first step is not necessary, but I wanted to paint my beads white. You can paint them any color that you wish or you can leave them the natural color.

If you decide on painting them, make sure you do thisbefore stringing the beads onto the twine. Let the beads completely dry!

As you can tell, I did not paint them perfectly. I wanted to give them a more worn out “rustic” look, so I just slapped the paint on the beads. (Literally!)

Next, you are going to want to decide on how long you are wanting your strand, depending on where/how you want to display it.
I used half of the package that I bought (a pack of 100 beads) which was 50 beads and got a pretty long strand out of it. So I’m actually going to use the remaining beads to make another strand of the Beaded Garland!

I wrapped a piece of masking tape around the end of the twine to prevent it from fraying while stringing the beads. This made it a lot easier and faster!

Slide the twine through the beads until you have reached your desired length. Make sure to leave about 4”  of twine on each side of the beads to either add your tassels or tie off each end.

Now that you have that done, it’s time to make the tassels!

CREATING THE TASSELS:

Wrap a new piece of twine around your palm 20-25 times.

Remove the twine from your palm and wrap another piece of twine around one end of the looped twine about 5 times, secure it with a knot and trim the excess twine off of the knot. Make sure to leave about 1” from the end when doing this.

Cut the loops on the opposite end to make the tassel.

Open up the tied off end of the tassel and feed the extra twine from the Garland through the loops. Bring the tassel up to the end of the beads and then tie a knot to secure the tassel to the Beaded Garland.

Now that you have one side complete, you will repeat these steps on the other side.
