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;

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.

Hang Them on the Door:

Begin by calculating and cutting pieces of nylon yarn in the length necessary to make your curtain; But vary the wire lengths on a 2-cm scale between one wire or the other. But measure a piece of yarn left to tie in the wood. Then place a beads at one end and tie a knot to make the “beak” of the curtain. And if you want you can also put a bigger pendant on the tips, so your curtain gets even more differentiated.

Then continue putting on the beads, but always intercalating the colors and sizes of the beads and crystals, forming a very interesting sequence. And when you get to the end give a knot so the stones do not escape. And repeat the same process on each of the nylon strands until you reach enough yarn for your curtain to get the desired width. And to finish, arm your curtain, and for this pass the leftover of each wire by drilling the wooden stick and tie with a knot. And your curtain is ready!
