DIY Halloween Wood Bead Garland 

Here are the supplies you’ll need:
Wood Beads
Orange paint (Pumpkin)
White Paint (Wedding Cake)
Black Paint (Beetle Black)
Paint brushes
Bead Cord 48 lbs Hemp Twine













Step 1: Separate your beads into groups for each color you have chosen.  (I had 21 beads total and used 7 beads of each color -orange, black and white). Slide the bead onto a skewer for better handling while painting.


















Paint your bead and then slide the off the skewer onto your plate to dry. Repeat this step for all of your beads.  I used a different brush for each color.


















Step 2: Place the beads onto a skewer and decorate your beads with alternating colors and patterns.  I used a Qtip to dab circles and draw lines.  (You could also use a Sharpie marker or other embellishments.)




















































Step 3: String your beads onto the cord alternating colors and patterns as you wish.



































And that’s it! Easy Peasy! I love the colorful spin on these trendy neutral wooden beads.


















This garland can also be used as a cute necklace or bracelet.












I love the traditional colors but the possibilities of color combinations are really endless!
