Today is the day!

Mystery Box Creative Challenge

We are so excited that besides a DIY wood bead yarn tassel we’re sharing, (complete with a matching garland,) we are part of our second Mystery Box Creative Challenge with some of our favorite blog friends, (see how we upcycled dollar store items into fall decor on the last round!) Basically how it works is we all sent an item (or more) to another DIY creative lifestyle blogger and make it work within our own decor/style. Easy right? Well, it is when these talented ladies all have killer style! 🤗

Here’s the official lineup of talent who is playing along this round:

Stocking Turned Garland

Now let’s get to the fun part! Here is what our cute friend Karianne from Thistlewood Farms sent: a pretty burlap stocking, complete with 4 rustic jingle bells. She was good to us, this is easy enough to decorate with as it’s pretty cute as-is!

We knew right away what we were going to do to make this “ours” and fit into our own Christmas home decor. We made a quick Hobby Lobby run and spied these spools of cozy yarn in yummy hues then snagged a few bags of natural wood beads to polish off the boho look we were going for.

See how we transformed this rustic stocking into a ribbon with some gorgeous yarn tassels!

Here’s what we did to transform this cutie:

  • Removed bells from stocking
  • Painted bells white
  • Cut the handle of the stocking off then trimmed each end in a V shape
  • Strung wood beads in between the bells to create a garland (alongside eucalyptus branches from my yard + baby’s breath sprigs)
  • Tucked the stocking into the garland to look like a giant bow
  • Top with our DIY Wood Bead Yarn Tassels!

DIY Wood Bead Yarn Tassel

I’m sure you’ve all seen the tassel craze that has hit Blogland, IG City, Pinterestville and even Twitter Town… LOL. Tassels are on the ends of blankets, corners of throw pillows, used as earrings, accessorized on handbags, and pretty much hanging from anything and everything you can hang something from! PSA: We fully support this trend and are happy to share how to make these popular cuties, (again.)

Cozy yarn tassels... love that texture! Snag the easy DIY along with an easy matching beaded garland! #diy #tassels #beadedgarland

As a refresher, we have a full tutorial on our DIY Tassel Wall Hanging post but you can see the complete steps here:

Now that you know how to make a tassel from yarn, to spruce it up a bit and pull off the boho vibe, just slide 2 natural wood beads on over the tail (larger on the bottom) then tie a knot at the end to secure.

You can even use the white yarn only then paint the beads red and green if traditional is more your style. SO simple!

We threaded 2 different sized wood beads with the painted white bells to create a simple but matching whimsical wood bead bell garland and love it against fresh eucalyptus leaves from my front yard tree.
