Y’all wouldn’t believe that this beautiful piece started out as a 50 cent thrift store curtain rod. The beautiful finials on the ends are what caught my attention as I rounded the corner, and I quite possible heard angels singing in the background. Ok, maybe I’m being just a tad bit dramatic but you get the point.
All of my fellow thrift store junkies know the exact feeling I am talking about. That moment when you see a fabulous piece that will soon make a perfect addition to your home or maybe its the missing piece of the puzzle for the DIY you’ve been dreaming up.
I knew exactly how I would use this thrift store curtain rod from the moment I laid eyes on it. You too can recreate this wall hanging with a few supplies I have listed below.
If I had to put a number on it, I would say I used about 130 beads to complete this project. It sounds like a lot but truly it’s not as many as you might think. I started by tying one end of the hemp twine to an end of the rod and begain threading.
I didn’t set out with a certain number in mind I just went until it hung the way I liked it, and tied it off on the other end. Make sure you pull the twine tight on the finishing end so there aren’t any gaps in your beads.
Repeat the beading and tying steps as much as you’d like. I stopped with 3. Decorating in 3s and 5s are my preference but do what makes you happy!
Next came the garland styling, which you can watch on Facebook. Overall, this entire project took about 30 minutes from start to finish!. It really is that easy.
Seriously, how beautiful is this project? Someone needs to pinch me. I can’t wait to hear your thoughts in the comments. Be sure to join us in the R+R Facebook Community and use #roostandrestorediy so we can see what you made!
