8 unique crafts to make using wood beads.

1. How to Make Farmhouse-Style Wood Bead Garland

This 30-inch farmhouse-style wood bead garland with jute twine tassels is simple to create and gives a neutral vibe for your shelf and tiered tray decor.

There are two styles contained in this post. One was created with all 20 mm wood beads, and one was made with both 20 mm and 10 mm wood beads.

There are also instructions on how to create a jute twine tassel for your garland.

One of the best parts is that you can use one set of wood beads from Amazon to create multiple projects from these posts! In each article, I list the number and size of beads needed for the home decor project.

2. Christmas Tree or Mantel Wood Bead Garland

This wood bead garland can be used for a Christmas tree or mantel and uses an alternating pattern of smallest (10 mm) to largest (20 mm) wood beads.

These can be made with loops on the end (to attach to your tree branches) or a tassel and fits in well with your farmhouse or rustic-style home decor.

They are so easy to paint or stain in different colors, but I think their natural color works well too. The jute twine is really simple to work with and gives a rustic vibe to your holiday space.

3. Valentine Wood Bead Garland
