Step-by-step tutorial to follow …Agate slices come in all sorts of (dyed) colours, shapes & sizes and they are so pretty! I’ve collected several over the last few weeks and to display them, I made this simple wall decoration. You can too! You’ll just need a few simple items.

  • Agate Slices. Various ranging from about 5cm to 8cm, with a single drilled hole.
  • Clear Beading Thread. Not too thick – you’ll be making knots.
  • Stick. I used a piece I found at the beach, like driftwood. Make sure it’s clean.
  • Twine. A small amount for the ‘hanging’ part. Or ribbon or embroidery floss.
  • Scissors. For trimming the clear thread and twine.

How to :

1. Assemble your supplies.

2. On a flat surface, position where you’d like the agate slices to fall.

3. TAKE A PHOTO! It really helps to refer back to it.

4. Knot the clear thread through the agate and tie to the stick (look at your photo).

5. Continue with all the slices, then finish with a piece of twine to hang.

  • I thought about painting or wrapping the stick with stripes of embroidery thread or ribbon, but decided to just leave simple, but go for it if you want lots of colour.
  • I used a variety of colours, but you could try monochrome or natural shades.
  • Don’t tie to the stick too tightly to start. You may need to adjust the positioning.
  • This could also be used like a child’s mobile or wind chimes, just make sure they don’t ‘clink’ together too much in a windy spot, in case they break.

    That’s a very creative way to display them. I only have a purple one so far and I just keep it in my Marimo container πŸ™‚

    That looks so great! Have you been collecting agate slices for a while, or did you buy them all at once for this awesome hanging? Asking for a friend (LOL kidding, I’m asking because now I NEED to make this or my life will be over)

      Haha! I did buy them over a period of a few weeks, just because I was looking for certain sizes and colours that came up for sale (online), but there are online sellers who offer ‘collections’ so you can get going straight away. Or if you’re lucky enough to live close by to gemstone shops, you could try them too. Thanks, glad you like it πŸ™‚

    Love it! Did the agate come pre-drilled?

    • Reply Adorablest October 3, 2015 at 9:27 am

      Yes, they were pre-drilled (single hole). You can also get double drilled (at both ends). Thanks!

    What was the length of the drift wood you used? This is adorable!

      Hi! and Thank you. Sorry for the late reply. The driftwood is about 45cm = about 17 or 18 inches.
