It´s funny how things turn out sometimes. Some weeks ago, I told you about my hunt for wooden beads and I showed you the garland I made from a back massager because I couldn´t find affordable wooden beads anywhere, remember? Well, turns out that I managed to find a box of 150 wooden beads back here in Spain that I ordered eagerly at amazon. They were an ok price, considering there were 150 beads in different sizes. I was so excited and pressed the order button, thinking how amazingly I was attracting wooden beads, lol! That is not all to the story though, I got quite the surprise, but ended up making this cute DIY mini wooden bead wreath with them!
So when the package arrived the next day…. I found myself holding an eensy weensy fairy size box with 150 tiny wooden beads in it, lol! That is why they add the diameter to the description and it was totally clear, but I just didn´t pay attention, envisioning and dreaming about another wooden bead garland except way longer this time.
DIY mini wooden bead wreath
On the website they looked huge and I didn´t look at the dimensions….oh no.
I arranged the beads in the pattern I liked and then started painting.
Never mind the bakers twine, I first planned on using it to thread the beads but then used wire.
And where the two ends were twisted to make the wreath, I added a string of cut linen that I fringed just a little.
Pin this for later!
So there is my DIY mini wooden bead wreath! It´s so simple, but that´s what I like… hope you do too! So tell me, have you ever ordered something that at the end didn´t look like how you thought it would??
Thank you for stopping by today, have a lovely day!
