How to Make a Beaded Wall Hanger:

Are you ready to start? Check to see if you have all the materials ready to go on your table as you don’t want to go running around trying to find this or that while you’re in the middle of creating your wall piece. 

So, if you have everything ready, let’s begin!

Step 1: Paint the leaf

We’re starting off with one of the easiest jobs on the list – painting the wooden decor leaf. So, grab the rose acrylic paint and your decor leaf, as well as your paintbrush, and go ahead and start laying down the color.

You want to make sure to reach in the little nooks and crannies, too, covering the whole thing with paint. Once done, you can set the leaf on a piece of paper and allow it to dry. Since we used acrylic paint, that shouldn’t take too long.

Step 2: Thread the beads

Next up, we have to start threading the beads. Take the line (we used fishing line), keep it straight, and start pushing the beads over it.

Since we’re using multiple colors and shapes for the beads, just alternate them as best you can, however, your creativity drives you to.

The way you’re going to stop these beads from slipping off the line is by making a knot. However, you’re not going to do a regular knot since that one will simply slip through the hole in the bead. Instead, once you’re done making a string of beads, push the line over the top bead and through the hole of the second bead. For extra security, you can loop the thread over the bead and then tie a knot.

While you want to cut the thread short on the lower end of the string of beads, you want to allow it a good length on the other end, so you can tie it around the branch. 

Make 5 strings of beadsOne that’s colorful and a bit longer than the others, two that are colorful and equal in size, and two that are just a tiny bit shorter, made out of monochrome beads until the very end where you can add three colorful beads. 

The longest string of beads should have longer threads on both ends.

Step 3: Add the wooden leaf

Your painted wooden leaf should have dried up by now, so you can go ahead and get the longest string of beads. Push the line through the tiny loop at the top of the wooden leaf and tie a double knot to secure the accessory.

Cut the excess line once the wooden leaf is tied in place.

Now all your beads are stringed and ready to get added to the decor piece.

Step 4: Create the hanger

Now it’s time to get the piece of the branch you have and the metal wire.

Wrap a few loops around one end of the stick, ensuring the wire is secure around the wood.

Then, extend the metal wire towards the other end, forming a loop in the middle and allowing it enough slack that you can hang the piece on the wall.

Twist the metal loop a couple of times before moving to the next area.

Once the loop is complete, you can loop the metal wire around the other end of the stick too. Make sure to wrap the wire tightly.

When you consider the whole process is done, you can get the scissors and cut the wire. Before you do, make sure there’s enough wire to create a small whimsical half-loop at the end.

Step 5: Add the beads

Now that the wire is in place, it’s time we tied the strings of beads to the stick.

Make sure you arrange them properly. The two with just a few colorful beads go at the ends, the longer ones on the inside, and the one with the wooden leaf goes in the middle.

Tie the line around the wooden stick, and then cut the excess with your scissors.
