Simple wooden bead garland

Hey Everybody! It’s Leigh Ann, again with The Davidson House. Thanks for stopping by! Today I want to share a real quick “how to”.

I am sure you have seen these wooden beads being used EVERYWHERE! I LOVE them. However I am not paying the retail price!

Currently I am counting the days down for my Christmas Tree! This is out of character for me. The more I blog the more I seem to be getting my own life together. So, “Thank You”. Because my house is looking CUTE!! Lol

Ok sorry for the rabbit trail… here we go.

I fell in love with these beads & couldn’t find them anywhere. Finally found them on Etsy for $30/maybe 3ft. This is too much for my pocketbook. So, I headed to my stores. I finally found a pack at Walmart. They were multi-color but that’s ok. I am doing a neutral Christmas tree this year. The different shades of brown will work great.

I found twine at the Dollar Tree. <a href=”https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=1363047&u=2180756&m=64888&urllink=&afftrack=”>Free Shipping to your Local Store</a> <—-affiliate link

That’s pretty much it.

SUPPLIES:

Wooden Beads ($5.00, actually less)

Twine ($1.00) <a href=”https://shareasale.com/r.cfm?b=1363046&u=2180756&m=64888&urllink=&afftrack=”>Everything always $1 – Shop Now</a> <—affiliate link

Step one: decide how long you want your garland

Step two: tie a knot at the end.

Step three: add beads & tie off

You are finished. I made shorter beads as well to use throughout my house on my tablescapes.

So, the outcome was (1) 9ft wooden garland plus (3) shorter, maybe a foot & half for table decor. All for less than $6.00. I’m happy & you will be too when you make these.

Once you give this a try share it on social media & tag my instagram. Remember to pin this for later!!!

Thanks a bunch

Leigh Ann 🙂

Sunflower Door or wall hanger. Yes another Goodwill “Flip”

Goodwill “flip”

It has been a busy week. I have several finds from Goodwill that I love. I probably can’t share them all on here. I will drive y’all bananas. But, I do want to share just one more. Be sure and follow me on my social medias if you would like to follow a little closer. This is a new journey for me. You are here in the beginning of me sharing with the world, lol.

In the picture above you can see the materials I used to pull this super cute door hanger together.

The sunflower heads are actually more recycled flowers from last years fall decor. If you saw my post from earlier I said “don’t throw anything away”. Always think outside the box. It may be a stemless flower it’s ok. You will need a stemless flower, trust me. Some flower foam to keep our arrangement tight. I used what I had. The foam I used is actually for real flowers but it’s ok.

Last but not least our Goodwill find. This cute thing was $1.99. I’m in love!

I love these little orange stickers.

So, easy Peasy you just place the flower foam in the hanger. I hot glued mine just for security of it holding in place. Mine is on our kitchen door. Lots of action with this door.

Once your foam is secure start adding your flowers. Put your larger ones in the back building forward across the foam. One or two of mine hang on the hanger just slightly.

Foam blocks in place to support the sunflower heads. Remember they are an upcycle, they have no stems.

Begin by placing your largest heads first and build forward with smaller ones.

When you get all of your flowers in place you can now decide where to place your bow. I made a very simple bow. Like always, basically I just tie my shoes. Simple!

Sunflower Goodwill Flip finished

I hope this inspires you to take a look through Goodwill or at least your own seasonal leftovers. It is surprising how much we can repurpose & re use.

Thanks for reading. Until next time be blessed ~ Leigh Ann 😊
