We originally saw this gorgeous wood bead floral wreath from our pal Peony & Honey. Luckily for us, she made a Christmas version so we were able to get the step by step to make a gorgeous wood bead wreath.

Since the 2″ wood beads are super pricey, we decided to use the split wood balls instead.

We found a 16 pack for $13.99 which makes them $0.87/each versus the 2″ doll head beads in hobby stores for about $1.50/each.

That doesn’t sound like much but when you’re using 13+ beads per wreath, it adds up!

(Please share in comments if you’ve found a better bead resource!)

You can definitely use smaller beads to save money but we love the look of the chunky beads, personally. Check out our wreath pin board for a variety of ideas.

Supplies to Make a Wood Bead Floral Wreath

Step by step to make a wooden bead wreath. Such a fun way to greet guests as easy outdoor decor! #woodbeadwreath #howtomakewoodbeadwreath #woodenbeadwreath #diy #tutorial #outdoordecor

  • Wood Wreaths (These are the only ones I could find online, they’re 12″. My wreath forms are 16″ from Michaels)
  • 2″ Split Wood Balls 16 pack (I used 1 pack per wreath.)
  • Assortment of Faux Flowers, a Bouquet and a Berry Stem.
  • Floral Wire (You can also use hot glue but I will likely swap my flowers seasonally so I’m keeping this option open for easy removal.)
  • Command Strips (For hanging: you can place the beads in between the metal hook.)

Other supplies/ways to create this wreath:

  • You can use a metal hoop instead of the flat wreath we used. If using a metal hoop, you’re able to simply string the beads through it. You’ll need to snip the hoop first to get the beads on, then glue the cut piece back together. Be sure your beads holes are the same width so they’ll be able to slide on easily. You can always drill a bigger hole, if needs be.
  • If you choose this method, you can glue the flowers directly to the beads or save on beads and follow Peony’s how-to. She glued a foam backing to one side of the hoop then stabbed the flowers on the front side to hide the foam. You could also use a piece of cardboard, in place of foam, then glue directly to the cardboard.

how to hang a wood bead floral wreath

I hung my wreath from my command strips. I simply set the wreath on top of it, in between 2 beads. I used the metal command hooks for this reason, to get a tight fit. No moving when the door is being slammed by kids all day long. 👍

You can also screw cup hooks into your door then hang the wreath with ribbon or clear fishing line.
