Are you looking to add a touch of winter charm to your home decor? I have just the thing for you! Follow my easy tutorial to create a beautiful DIY winter wooden snowflake and bead garland. This garland is perfect for adding a festive and cozy vibe to any room and the best part is it won't break the bank!
Around two weeks ago, I went through my winter craft material that I had packed away in containers. While looking through, I stumbled upon these wooden snowflakes that I had purchased some time back from my local Dollar Tree. I knew I wanted to create a garland using them, but I wasn't sure what to add to the snowflakes except for paint, of course. Eventually, I decided to use some craft gems and a few other materials to put it together. This craft is incredibly easy and perfect for beginners.
Wooden snowflakes (I purchased a pack at my local Dollar Tree)
Acrylic paint (I'm using white and a lighter blue)
Applying paint to the wooden snowflakes
To make a winter wooden snowflake and bead garland decoration, start by painting your wooden snowflakes with acrylic paint. I used six snowflakes for my garland and painted three of them white. For the other three, I mixed the two colors together. Allow the snowflakes to dry completely.
Adding craft gems to snowflakes
After that, add craft gems to each snowflake using adhesive. I added some light, and dark blue gems that I found hidden in my craft bin.
Adding Mod Podge and faux snow
Next, use a paintbrush to apply Mod Podge to the ends of a few snowflakes. Then, sprinkle faux snow over the Mod Podge on the snowflakes.
Adding beads and snowflakes to twine
Take the twine and add wooden beads and snowflakes. Alternate between a bead and a snowflake until all beads and snowflakes have been added to the twine. To keep the snowflakes from flipping over, add a small amount of hot glue to the back of each snowflake and press the twine down on it.
That's it! Your winter wooden snowflake and bead garland decoration is complete. Let me know if you decide to make one! Thank you for reading.
