Wood Slice & Jewelry Bead Garland

I made a really fun project this week for our upstairs makeover that I wanted to share with you all. (I still have a few projects to check off my list, so reveal coming soon...although I have shared a picture of the DIY plaid wall on social media, recently.)


Anyway, the space is crazy narrow with zero room for furniture, so I'm relying on wall treatments and wall d├ęcor to give the space some personality.








I started with a stack of branches that we sliced into varying thicknesses (these are available for purchase at craft stores if you don't have a stash at home). I also drilled a hole in the center of each.  I then purchased a few sets of beads (acrylic faceted nuggets and moss agate nuggets in the jewelry making section here and some hemp cord in a neutral color). Bonus: the beads are 60% off this week!




I laid out my pattern to get a feel for how it would look.



Then I carefully strung it all together. One note:
 make sure your cording can fit through the holes of the stones you purchase as some are quite narrow.

I want to hang my garland vertically, so I tied a loop at one end and just a knot on the bottom, but you can adjust based on your needs.




I cannot wait to get this hung up. It will give a nice accent of color to a super, super neutral space. Also, the mix of texture between the rustic wood slices and the pretty beads are perfect to me!
