Quick and easy farmhouse beads home decor project…
Before we moved into our new home a few months ago I knew I wanted to decorate in farmhouse style. I designed our home to have gray wood floors, an all white kitchen, and other touches that add to the farmhouse style charm. Now that we’ve been living in the house for a couple of months we’ve finally started hanging some things on the walls.
To be honest, it takes a while for me to envision exactly where something will look best. If you follow me over on Instagram you may have seen me asking for advice about where to hang a sign over our pantry. I finally had my husband move it and hang a big shelf filled with some of my Rae Dunn mug collection! Here’s how it looked once it was totally done:
I decided to spruce up our decor a bit more with some homemade farmhouse beads. I ordered the supplies and got to work! These are super cute and fairly easy to make. Below I’ll give you step by step instructions for how you can make your own farmhouse beads:

Start this project with a pack of 50 round wood beads and a roll of jute twine. You could even paint your beads ahead of time to make your beads a pretty color to match your decor. I left mine natural to go with my home decor.
First, to make the tassels for each end of the beads, wrap the twine around the width of your hand approximately 20-30 times. The more you wrap the ticker your tassel will be.
Once you’re done wrapping, slide the wrapped twine off of your hand.
Next, you’ll secure the top of the twine bunch by securing it with another piece of twine tied in a knot. This piece of twine will be long (I left mine attached to the roll before completing the next step).
Now, wrap the next piece of twine around the top of the tassel, then secure with a know when you’re happy with how thick it is.
Using scissors, cut the end opposite of the one you wrapped to complete your tassel.
Repeat the process again to make two tassels.
Now it’s time to start threading your beads on. Begin by tying one tassel onto the end of a very long piece of twine through the loop at the top.
Then, thread the beads on. I suggest taping one end of the twine to allow it to thread through the beads more easily.
Once you’ve added all of the beads on, you’ll add the second tassel to the other end of the strand of beads.
That’s it! You now have a beautiful strand of farmhouse beads to add some flair to your farmhouse home decor!
