DIY: Oversized Bead Decor
You don't know how hard it was to NOT name this post "DIY: Big Ball String" - but here we go. These are so simple & very easy to style. You can drape them over and through your current decor or place them in a bowl. Originally these were intended to be like the infamous Heart Prayer Beads, from The Cross Design. After hours of searching for the perfect wooden heart that would work, I improvised and the beads stand alone - it still works. I am very temped to paint them black, but will hold off for now. If you are looking for the perfect coffee table or shelf filler, this is it!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
WHAT YOU WILL DO
+ Cut hemp as long as you would like the piece to be, I had cut mine to 60".
+ String as many wooden pieces that will fit on the string, do not know the end yet.
+ Once all beads are strung, tie the ends closed, leaving a about a 1/2"-1" for leverage. The beads will need this to move when you are styling them.
