For beaders, one of the first projects many of us do (successfully) is beaded curtains, because there’s really no pattern or technical skill involved. It’s just a matter of how-you-like-it, and even when you make mistakes, generally no one will notice, and you can often just work things that go awry into the overall project.
So what is there to think about when doing beaded curtains or beaded sun-catchers, then? Well, probably the best and maybe only thing is to take a look at the range of things out there – all the beaded curtains other crafters have made. And then of course you have to think about the beads required, whether you’re going to make something from the beads you already have at home, and adapt a plan to those, or if you’re going to come up with a plan first, and then seek out the beads. Bead hunt! Another way you can make curtains like this but not exactly is with “paper beads.” You can buy paper beads, but you can also make them out of colored paper.
Here’s a few beaded curtains that have caught our eyes recently. If you’re looking for more ideas after this, or if you want to buy a pre-made beaded curtain from one of these crafter’s shops, here are the names: BohoPrincesa, Candice at Refab, RonitPeterArt, Laura Nagle, I don’t know who made the mandela discs but I’d like to if anyone can tell me – it’s a picture that is just everywhere online.
