A few years ago my grandmother was downsizing and I was lucky enough to receive a bunch of her unused craft supplies that she no longer needed. One of the many items I received was a huge assortment of wood craft beads. I'm talking large beads, small beads, round beads and everything in between. Determined not to let them go to waste I decided to make a simple DIY wood garland, but I didn't want to make just any wood garland. I wanted to make something a little different, so I added simple jute tassels.
This is seriously the easiest craft project I have ever made. You only need 3 supplies, it takes less than 10 minutes to make and the total cost is less than $5.00. It doesn't get any easier or cheaper than that!
HOW TO MAKE A WOOD BEAD GARLAND WITH TASSELS
Once I was happy with the thickness of my tassels I took another piece of jute and tied it around the top of my tassel (about a 1/4 inch from the top), knotting it off.Now that my tassel was done I cut a long piece of jute (a little longer than the length you want your garland) and threaded it through the top of my tassel, knotting off the end.
