Step 1. String Beads.

I used small wooden beads and painted them with spray paint in black, red, and white. I left one set of beads natural.

I used a piece of twine and began stringing the beads in a pattern I like once the beads were dry.

Some of the bead holes were too small for the twine so I used a pair of tweezers and rotated one end inside of the beads to make the hole larger and/or to clean out the bead so the twine would fit.

Step 2. Create Tassel.

I used some lace ribbon from Dollar Tree, some wired buffalo ribbon from Hobby Lobby, and some of the twine I used to create the garland.

I cut everything to about the same length. I also cut the wire off of the wired ribbon. I didn't want my tassel to be stiff.

I layered all of the pieces and stacked them together.

I used some more twine and wrapped it around the top of the tassel.

I tied a double know to start and left the end of the knot at the top of the tassel. This will help when attaching the tassel to the garland.

Step 3. Attach Garland.

I then added a dab of hot glue to the top of the tassel and the first bead on the garland, just to make sure everything is secure.

I tied a simple double knot at the other end so the beads wouldn't roll off.

Step 4. Complete the Garland.

I wanted more of a tattered look so I began stripping some of the pieces off of the buffalo ribbon for a fringed appearance.

This is a simple DIY project and a great stress reliever during the holidays.
