What you need to make a curtain tie-back:

  • Wire
  • Side-cutters
  • Round nose pliers
  • A selection of beads
  • Clasps
what you need

Step 1

Take a 20cm piece of wire and add a big bead (in your choice of colour) to the one end. Place a bead with a big centre over the end to hide the wire.

Step 2

Add a smaller bead onto the wire. You may want to see if you can match the colour of your small beads to the colour of your curtains.

Step 4

Add four smaller beads in a variety of colours, or try to match the beads to the colour of your room.

Step 5

Cut your wire about 1cm away from your last bead. Make a loop with your wire on top of your beads.

You need to make two of these for each tie-back

Step 6

Take a 50cm piece of wire (or beading trace), and add a clasp on one side by threading it through the loop of the clasp. Fold it over and clamp it shut with a crimp.


Step 7

Fill the beading trace with beads, following a design of your choice. I have chosen a repetitive nine bead pattern.

Step 8

When you are done, close your tie-back by adding a crimp onto the beading trace. Fold the beading trace over and back through the clasp. You can thread it back into some beads if you like. Crimp it closed.

Step 9

Choose where you want your pendants to hang. Gently open up your hook, hook in place and close the hook again.
