DIY Clay Bead Garland

I’ve been seeing bead garlands in my feed for months and finally got around to making one! You could easily make one using all wooden beads, but I wanted to try making a weightier one using air-dry clay. When you use clay, each bead is slightly different - making the garland look more unique and less “production line perfect”.
