I love doing a project with natural wood supplies. It’s so fun to start — it’s like a perfect blank canvas and there are so many directions you can go to dress it up (or just leave it plain). These natural wood beads were calling my name and so I decided to whip them into a little simple summer necklace. Here we go!

Materials

  • natural wood beads in different shapes
  • craft paint
  • paintbrushes
  • embroidery thread
  • scissors
  • masking tape

Make Time: 20 Minutes

Gather your supplies. If you’re looking for some cool nature-inspired or natural materials, head to Michael’s starting on August 8th. They’re unveiling a new line called Raw Bar, with materials like natural cork, wood, burlap, metal and canvas (we got a sneak peek and it’s pretty cool!).

Once you have your beads chosen, go crazy with the paint. I liked the idea of a diagonal line across the wooden spools to make them feel a little more modern. Some beads got left completely natural, which is cool for some contrast.

String the beads onto a 36″ length of embroidery thread.

Tie the ends of your embroidery thread into an adjustable knot (we have a tutorial on that right here!).

Adjust the knot to your liking and slip it over your head! I kind of love this — it’s like a throwback to my old childhood beaded jewelry but with some grownup touches. Hope you try one! If you’re into the raw materials, check out the rest of the Michael’s Makers projects, below. xoxo
