How to Make a Wood Bead Garland with Tassels
The first step to creating your own bead garland is to create a tassel for one end. Start by wrapping your string around the palm of your hand several times. The number of wraps you do will depend on how thick you want your tassel. To create a medium-sized tassel, I wrapped the string 25 times around the palm of my hand.
After wrapping the tassel, carefully remove it from your hand and cut a long piece of string from the roll. This long piece of string will be the string you use to hold your bead garland, so make sure it’s long enough to hold all your beads, plus a little extra to attach your tassels. Thread one end of your long string through the center of your tassel loops and tie it at the top.
Use another string to bunch the top of the tassel, wrapping the string around the top of the string bunch and securing it in place by tying the ends of the string together. Finish creating your tassel by using scissors to cut the bottom loops.
Now that your tassel is ready, it’s time to start adding your wood beads! Thread the end of the string through a wide-eyed needle to make it easy to add the beads to the string. Then, simply thread all your beads onto the string to create a long wood bead garland.
When you have added all your beads, create another tassel on the end of the bead garland following the same instructions.
