In today’s tutorial – the second to last project of my Advent Calendar 2017 – I’ll show you how to make a pretty, non-wilting faux cranberry wreath with wood beads. It’s an easy and quick last minute holiday craft: It took me just some minutes yesterday to string and paint the beads.
These wooden beads have been sitting in my stash for far too long. So it was high time to use them for something.
- (raw) wood beads
- red acrylic paint
- round nose pliers & wire cutter
- cotton string
Thread the wooden beads onto the wire.
Bend the wire into a wreath form and twist the ends of the wire together. Cut of one of the wire ends (you’ll need the other wire end as handle.)
Paint the wooden beads with red acrylic paint and let the wreath dry overnight.
Bend the other end of the wire into an eye, cut off the excess wire and thread some cotton string through the eye as hanger for the red berry wreath ornament.
