DESCRIPTION +

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Sticks or wood pieces
  • Cotton Cord
  • Clear Nylon Monofilament
  • Beads (Various wood tones and sizes)
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Lay your sticks or wood pieces on work surface. Figure out the spacing you want for the hanging beaded pieces. Once you figure out the spacing, you can lightly mark them with a pencil.
  2. Wrap the monofilament around the stick several times where you want the first hanging beaded strand and secure in place with a knot.
  3. Add the desired bead pattern to the monofilament and secure the last bead in place by knotting it in place. Use several knots to secure and cut off any excess.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 until all the strands are completed. Make sure to pull the monofilament down each time so that the strands all hang downward across the stick.
  5. Wrap the cord around the stick at one end slightly in from the edge. Secure with a knot. Decide the length of your cord to determine how far the wood hangs down. Secure the other side with a knot slightly in from the edge. Cut off any excess cord from the ends.

Craft Hack Tips and Tricks:

  • Plan out your bead patterns by laying out beads before stringing them to help decide the varying lengths.
