I’m really excited to share this easy little DIY for your home. I truly believe that making a house a home is all in the details. Little personal touches are what gives your home character and personality.
Tired of looking at the boring plastic pulls on my kitchen window roman shades, I decided to give them a simple, modern update. Fun geometric shapes and trendy color combinations make these bead curtain pulls current and playful.
Supplies needed –
- natural and dark stained geometric wood beads (I used 5 for each)
- wooden bbq skewer
- masking tape
- craft paint in your favorite colors
- paint brush
This really is as simple as it looks, just paint a few of the beads and then thread them on your curtain and roman shade pulls. I do have a technique for painting these wooden beads I’d like to share. Wrap a small piece of masking tape around the end of a skewer.
This will keep the bead in place while you paint it. You can do this on either end of the skewers and then stand them up in a glass to dry.
This little DIY gives you a chance to play with some great colors in tiny itty bitty doses. Add a splash of neon or play it safe with touches of metallic and pastels.
