neon bead party garland


last year when i made some beaded garland for this shoot, i always felt that it never really got the attention it deserved. so i'm bringing it back with a little twist… a neon pop for summer.


you'll need some natural wood beads, neon paint, brush and heavy string.
paint about a 1/4 of your beads in the neon paint. it'll take a couple of coats, so give yourself some time on this step.


randomly string the beads spacing out your neon pops. tie the end beads tightly with the string.


hang and enjoy.


i love these garlands because they are great for parties, but don't have to be put away afterwards. ours is now adding a fancy little touch to our faux antlers hanging on the wall in our living room. where would you hang yours?
