Now if this is the first time you are hearing about evil eye beads (nazar beads), you’re probably thinking “wwwhhhaaaat??” – LOL. It is ok, though – the concept of the evil eye is a Mediterranean and West Asia thing (click here to read more about it), so I wouldn’t expect many of you to know about it. Basically, it is a glass charm or talisman that is believed to protect you and your beloved ones and everything that belongs you from the “evil eye” – a curse put upon you behind your back by the jealous eyes and bad thoughts of others. It is not a superstition, nor is it a religious thing. The evil eye is a cultural thing 😉 We Turks almost always have glass evil eyes somewhere in our houses, so as you may guess, I already had some on hand, and that is why I wanted to incorporate some evil eye beads with these wood bead garlands.  [I want to add to this that Turks believe that the glass evil eyes absorb bad energy, and when they are full, they break, thus dispelling all of that bad energy. Turks nearly celebrate when an eye breaks, because they feel they’ve been spared all of that bad energy. Likewise, they celebrate the accidental breaking of any glass, as that too is believed to dispel all bad and negative energy. And really, I mean any glass – no matter how big or valuable. Don’t believe me? I’m living proof. After you read this awesome post of Handan’s, click here to read what I’m yapping about 🙂 -Greg]

Now that we have the materials list out of the way, let’s start making some wood bead garlands, shall we?

First I cut a piece of wire to use as a needle for threading the beads. I bent my wire to create a “V”, then put my hemp cord through it and twisted my wire so the hemp cord was secured in it.

Next, I started threading the beads and the tassels in a pattern I like.

If you’d rather have single thread cord, you can tie your tassel on the end and finish your garland here. But I wanted my garland to be a little stronger, hence after threading the tassel, I carried on threading beads once again, but going backward this time (as can be seen from the pictures below.)

Once I finished threading the second time, I tied the two loose hemp cord ends to each other. When tying, I made sure the cord was tight but also loose enough to give some flexibility to the garland.

After tying a strong knot, I cut the hemp cord and tucked the ends of it into the bead hole. And that was that!

Aren’t these so simple to make? And they really look great wherever you put them.

Here is my favorite one – the one with the large evil eye beads! I have to say, I love adding this kind of little Mediterranean touch here and there. 🙂

As you can see, with those two sets of beads, I made quite a few garlands, so if you’re planing to make just one, I would suggest getting only one set of beads, as it will be more than enough to make a lovely wood bead garland.

If you have any other type of beads or some unused bead bracelets at home, you can also use them in your garland like I did with these metal beads.

I know there were quite a bit of photos, but I wanted you to see all different styled wood bead garlands: some with colored beads, some with leather tassels, some with sisal twine tassels, some just simple plain and some with mixed-size beads. Only one thing is common with all: they are very affordable and incredibly easy to make. So I hope you give these lovelies a try 😉

  1. This is crazy…I JUST MOMENTS ago placed my green malachite necklace around a frosted green jar and my vintage colored crystal necklace around my elephant photo…..needless to say, I LUV!! franki

    1. Hahahaha – I must me channeling you Franki, because before you commented, I was thinking about the bead necklaces I have and wondering how would they look as wine glass charms 😀 I think they would look awesome in a table setting!

  2. I’ve seen these around and they never “grabbed” me, but I love the ones you made and the decorating ideas you showed. I love all your posts!

  3. The beads with tassel is a great way the decorate jars with homemade goodies for gifts or for cotton buds etc. on the vanity. Thanks I use this great idea.

  4. Your wooden bead garlands with tassels are lovely. Thanks for another great tutorial. But I have to say, aside from walking away from your project posts in awe of your creativity and tickled by your sense of humor, I also walk away inspired by your photography. This post was no exception!

    1. Thank you so much, Marie! Oh Greg is so delighted with the comment on the pictures! I have to say he is working hard to get his photography skills better and I think all that hard work is paying off 🙂

    1. Oh you’ll love these garlands, Michelle! Greg uses them pretty frequently in his photos. And I just put them in the house here and there 😉 They are really easy to make, yet great for styling!

  5. I love, love the strands of beads and have made a couple where I soaked a few of the beads in paint. But where did you get the elongated darker wood beads? I can’t find them anywhere. Help!
