A cheap and fancy way to dress up those windows!
This makes two windows worth, 16 strands of beads. Even if you already have curtains, these add an elegant touch. I saw them at a home goods store for 40 dollars a window, the glue was even done sloppily! I decided to make them myself and found the exact same beads that were used on them in a Jo Anne's for a reasonable price with ribbon. The total was $18 for both windows versus $80 retail.
I threaded on 9 beads per strand, spacing them out evenly and only hot-gluing one bead to hide the riddbon's end. The beads in the middle were small enough that they stayed in place without glue. My beads were very similar to these in the picture and came in assorted bags of which I bought one per window.
