Decorate Your Home with a DIY Winter Wooden Snowflake and Bead Garland

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.

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.
