Glass beads, wood or plastic can be used to make beautiful designs of beaded curtains. You can make one that is thick enough and plentiful enough to cover the entrance of a room, or use only a few strands to attract the light in a window. Wholesale supplier’s online accounts offer volume discounts and a variety of free patterns and designs to make curtains with beads.
Choose the size, style and color of the accounts that you plan to use to make your beaded curtains. Accounts vary in size from 4 to 10 mm and larger, in a variety of colors and materials. You will need to measure the height of the space you’re going to cover, so you can estimate the number of accounts you need for the project. For example, to make a strand of six feet (1.83 meters) round beads six millimeters, you will need approximately 234 accounts.
The different shapes and sizes also affect the number of accounts you need to make your beaded curtains design. Design a pattern for your strands accommodating accounts such as would place on them. The designs are usually repetitive patterns, so I just need to accommodate the first section, until it begins to repeat itself.
