When the icicles grow one above another..oops..
I enjoyed crafting with icicles :) and because I love re-use. recycling and creative innovation, I'd decided to make more with those lovely things..
And another reason is that I come from a "white winter land" where we have mountains covered in snow and windows decorated with all these real winter lollipops ;)))

So, let's get on with this dreamy curtain.....

    Step 1

    I will leave out the tutorial for icicles as there already is one on here...
    --------------------------------------
    For that you will need the bottles, scissors and candle to twist the plastic strips over the heat of it..because you will need both hands for it...
    -------------------------------------
    Number of plastic bottles and glass beads depends on your fantasy....Have fun...

    Step 2

    Alrightee, I used the clear bottles for this project to give the real look..
    You can make them short or long
    twist them into spiral or I found them more interesting rather long shaped...

    And pls, be aware:
    IT IS A TIME CONSUMING PROJECT..THE SUCCESS DEPENDS ON YOUR FANTASY AND A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF PATIENCE IS REQUIRED.. ^_^

    Step 3

    You make holes in them with a needle or anything sharp you preffer to pierce the icicles on both ends up and down side..to make sure that the holes are not too close to the ends to be able to hold the string and bead weight of hanging...

    Step 4

    Depends on you which string you want to use, if nylon-fishing line.. or yarn...

    ...also the beads can be any of your choice- wooden, plastic, paper....

    I found the glass beads fitting the best with my idea and also it helped to hold the weight down -- as you know plastic is very light.. :))
