I always love colorful holiday decor! I am currently conflicted between bright Christmas trees with almost every color and just having a more rustic feel with red, black, white and copper. Today I am swinging toward bright everything! The last two years or so colorful felted ball garlands have been really popular. And I adore those of course but this beaded garland makes for a great and easier (I think) alternative! So read ahead for one of the easiest DIY projects we have featured. And after Christmas, you can use the garland to make bracelets and necklaces. Or save it for next year!
I started with these awesome wooded beads from PandaHall (find them here). They come in a bunch of different shapes and sizes and I used 3 different sizes of beads for this tree garland.
- Wooden Beads //
- Needle //
- Embroidery Thread
1. Start stringing your beads on the thread in any combination/pattern you want. I honestly did not give this any thought and just put different sizes and colors together and I really like how it turned out. Continue beading until you have the length of garland you need.
2. Once you are done beading, tie knots at both ends and hang your garland up!
I am just in love with this garland! Imagine this colorful one alongside another one in just one color but different sizes. Or a bunch of these hanging from a fireplace! That would be so pretty! And if you want more garland ideas, head over to our Christmas pinterest board!

I love my modern wood forest although I just want a white fireplace so badly! And in case you are wondering, the tutorial for the lovely beaded garland on my deer’s head is here! […]
