Star Trek Beaded Curtain
LovelyMiss recently posted her Star Trek insignia beaded curtain at Craftster. It’s made of 12,267 pony beads strung on 36″ strands of 3mm macrame cord. Each strand is 141 beads, and there are 87 strands. She made the strands about 6″ longer than needed and then just tied them around the dowel. LovelyMiss put a little hot glue in the knots to hold them in place and then trimmed the ends. The cords are on a 36″ dowel and the curtain itself weighs about 10 lbs. She even painted the dowel as well.
LovelyMiss figured it too about 25-30 hours of beading, and then another 8 hours of prep work (measuring the beads and doing necessary math, making patterns, pre-cutting lengths of cord).
She even included her pattern in her post, in case anyone else wants to make one for themselves.
