kinda like a bead curtain but better
This is a super easy and cheap way to make some really cool looking curtains. They add a great arty/colorful look to most rooms and are similar to those bead curtains that you see for sale. To finish this it will take anywhere from 5 hours to a week (depending on how fast you work). This should cost somewhere between $20.00-$40.00.

  • Step 1

    Cut about 40-50 pieces of yarn into 5/6 foot pieces (or however long the doorway is)

  • Step 2

    Tie a knot at one end of the yarn

  • Step 3

    Thread the yarn onto the needle

  • Step 4

    thread pom-poms onto the yarn, leaving a 2-3 inch space in between pom-poms (you do not need to knot the yarn between poms, they will stay in place on their own)

  • Step 5

    Repeat until you reach the end of the yarn leaving a 5-6 inches on the end

  • Step 6

    Repeat step 5 until you run out of pieces of yarn

  • Step 7

    Cut or make the dowel/curtain rod the length of the closet, and place in between the two walls of the closet doorway (the tension should hold the rod in place)

  • Step 8

    Tie the top piece of the yarn (the part with the extra 5-6 inches left) around the rod.

  • Step 9

    Repeat step 8 until you run out of yarn with the pom-poms on it.

  • Step 10

    Depending on how wide you doorway is you might need to thread more poms otherwise your done!
