Making a Beaded Doorway Curtain?

I'd like to make a beaded door curtain like they have in shops in Europe. It could be made from plastic or bamboo. Does anyone have a pattern, instruction, tips?

How To Make Beaded Curtains

Making your own beaded curtain is creative and fun. Follow our simple instructions to make your bead curtains.

If you can't think of a design, be sure to look at our beaded curtain sample patterns.

Materials Required

Thread or string
Curtain rod
Curtain rod brackets (to support your curtain rod)
Eye hooks
Thin white straws (optional)


Ruler and pencil

Steps to Making Beaded Curtains

Measure the width of the window or doorway and make sure that the rod is the right width. Using the ruler and pencil, divide the rod into equal parts and screw in the eye hooks at the points marked.

Cut the thread into pieces (two inches longer than the desired length of your curtain - which leaves room for tying off ends). Standard curtain length is 75 inches (190 cms).

Tie a knot in one end of the thread, this end will become the bottom of this curtain strand.
Thread the beads onto your piece of string.

When you are finished with a length of bead curtain, tie a knot in the top end. You'll need to put the knot right next to the last bead, and make sure you have two to four inches of thread available to make a loop in the top end of the thread.


Attach the eye hooks to the curtain rod.
Attach each curtain strand that is completed by placing the top loops onto the eye hooks.
Fix the curtain rods brackets above the window or doorway.
Place the curtain rod on the brackets above the window or doorway.
