After using these beautiful wooden beads for our macrame wall hanging, we thought it would be fun to use them for another project. Our designer Meagan came up with this wood bead tropical wreath for our May Craft Collection that features paper orchid flowers, monstera leaves, and palm leaves. As a final touch, she added a few lavender sprigs, which you can also find in our crepe paper wrist corsage.

This wood bead wreath is perfect for all skill levels, including beginners. And we have included a PDF template as well as an SVG file below if you want to cut by hand or use your cutting machine.

Wooden you like to make your own wreath?

If you want to switch it up from tropical flowers, this wood bead wreath can be used as a base for many of our asymmetrical wreaths. For example, you could use it for this anemone wreath, our hellebore wreath, or our paper succulent wreath. Another option is to make this tropical wreath using a braided rope wreath as your base instead of the wooden beads.

Whether you make this wood bead tropical wreath or change up the design, we’d love to see your version! You can always email photos of your projects to or tag #MadeWithLia on Instagram or Facebook.
