Home Decoration Designs - Making a Beaded Curtain with Beautiful Acrylic Flowers
Summary: Wondered to DIY a handmade decoration for home? I recommend this tutorial which tells you all details on how to make a beaded curtain, within merely an hour or less!
In today’s project, I’m gonna tell how I make a beaded curtain. This simple yet sparkling beads curtain design has just added splash of color to my room and it’s really easy-to-do! Most prominently, there is no sewing and you can entirely take advantage of the basic overhand knot! Here are the instructions:
Supplies needed for the acrylic beaded curtain:
Transparent Acrylic Beads
Round Colorful Acrylic Beads
Gengon Wood Beads
Owl Pendant Cabochon Setting
Acrylic Rhinestone Bead (not shown)
Lace Trim (optional)
Double Faced Adhesive Tape (optional)
Mark Pen (optional)
How to make the beaded curtain?
Step 1: Make the central owl pendant bunch
1st, cut a 34cm piece of cord;
2nd, attach the owl pendant to 1/3 location of cord by using a Lark’s Head Knot;
3rd, loop the cord by tying an Overhand Knot;
4th, tie another 3 Overhand Knots about 2cm away from the owl pendant. Then, string one largest (24cm) blue acrylic bead;
5th, tie the same Overhand Knots 2cm away the blue pendant and then string one smaller (20cm) bead;
6th, glue the selected rhinestone bead into the owl pendant cabochon setting. Now, you’ve finished the central bunch.
Step 2: Make the rest beads bunches in varying lengths
1st, cut a 68cm piece of cord;
2nd, string one purple and one black on two ends of cord. Secure by tying two Overhand Knots;
3rd, tie 3 Overhand Knots to secure the large-sized flower bead upon the two small-sized ones;
4th, in the following work, you’ll just need to repeat tying Overhand Knots to stop right beads in proper place. In my beads curtain design, I made five couples of beaded bunches extra and the lengths of needed cords are: 68cm, 76cm, 84cm, 92cm and 100cm.
Step 3: Hang then on the door
1st, find the center of door and then stick the owl pendant bunch;
2nd, divide both sides into 5 equal parts and then attach the rest bunches by using double faceted adhesive tape;
3rd, cover the other face of tape with a lace trim.
So, there I’ve turned the round and flower acrylic beads into a fun curtain. How about adding sparkle to your room with a curtain of selected beads? No matter the opaque acrylic beads or dazzling crystal ones, beaded door curtains are the best handmade decorations for home!

Get your beads, decide the pattern, and then arrange the beads on threads by knotting again and again :)
