CURTAIN ON THE DOOR (part 3)
Most often, for the basis of such curtains, colored threads or fishing line are used, on which glass balls, wooden tubes or beads are strung. Think about what the finished product should look like and what cornice to use for it.
To make curtains in oriental style you will need:
Fishing line or thread.
Beads, wooden tubes or glass balls for decoration.
A needle for attaching beads.
Screwdriver / drill.
So, let’s get started on the workflow. Mark the doorway for a cornice. This design is best secured above the edge of the doorway by 5 cm. As fasteners, you can use a wooden plank, which should be pre-painted in the color of the curtain. On this bar, you need to mark in advance the points through which you will stretch the threads. Their number depends only on your ideas about the beautiful. Depending on the density of the threads, the curtain will be either dense or translucent. Then you need to string the beads on the thread and fix them on the cornice.
Calculation of the height of the threads: measure the distance from the cornice to the floor (or other height you want from the floor level), add 5 cm to the fasteners and multiply the resulting amount by 2. This length is necessary in order to string the peroxide beads. In this case, it is important to first draw up a diagram or use an already prepared one.
To make the thread fastener more reliable, use a loop, not just knots. To prevent the curtains from fluttering in a draft, weight the curtains below with large heavy beads that are fixed to the loop and knot. To make the fixation more reliable, glue the lower bead with polymer glue.
To make curtains from wooden elements, you will need to purchase them in a specialized store. They can be of different shapes: rhombuses, circles, squares or leaves. You can also use plastic that mimics wood.
You will need:
durable thread / fishing line;
cornice with rings;
special clips to hold the decor, called crimps.
The manufacture of such a curtain does not differ practically from its analogue from beads. It is necessary to prepare thread cuts, string the decor, while fixing each element with crimps or simple knots. Fasten to the cornice and install it above the opening.
Using the curtains on or above the door, in the opening you can beautifully complement the interior. Thus, the room is decorated in a classic style, retro, modern, Provence, minimalism and hi-tech.
