DIY Wood Beaded Farmhouse Pumpkin


One of my favorite things about Fall, besides pumpkin spice, is the decor!

Every year, I try new DIY Fall Decor ideas to add a cozy feel to my home while the crisp autumn air swirls outside.

This year, I am trying to go for more minimalist fall decor to match the rest of my home, so I am staying away from Hobby Lobby.

Over the past year, I have decluttered my home and have it looking the way I always wanted it to.

So buying more stuff was not an option.

If you have kept up with me you may have noticed that I really like DIY home decor.

It feels more personal and I can customize it to my taste.

Natural Fall Decorating Ideas –  Wood Beaded Pumpkin

My decorating style is a mix of Farmhouse and Scandinavian.

I love the rustic look of vintage farmhouse decor AND I  love the simplistic look of woodland Scandinavian decor.

So I mix the two as much as I can.

The colors in my home are white and neutral with accents of wood.

With beautiful natural elements, Farmhouse Scandinavian decor creates such a simple and clean living space.

One home decor staple that goes with Farmhouse and Scandi style is wood beads.

Wood beads are a beautiful touch to your home.

Their natural color and simple rounded texture give such a shabby chic look that I can’t get enough of it!

When they are mixed with some greenery it gives a beautiful natural woodland touch.

Wooden beads have become my favorite decor item, which is why I have had my eye on this gorgeous wood beaded chandelier for a while now.

He loved twisting all the beads onto each jute strand.

How do you make a wooden beaded pumpkin?

Supplies Needed:


  1. Cut the Jute into 5 pieces. I cut each piece to be 22 inches.
  2. Take 2 jute pieces and make an “X” by twisting them together in the middle. Just like this picture. Jute Wood Beaded Pumpkin

I loves this idea but the jute kept splaying out on the end. We ended up using pipe cleaners. My daughter and I love it!

Hi Angela! I am so glad you love it! The jute does tend to unravel a little, just be sure to gently twist the wooden bead on.

Hi Julie! The best way to keep the wooded beads from unraveling the jute is by twisting the beads gently down the jute covered wire.
