**EDIT**

in honor of Crafters With Kitties.  quick and dirty PS.



What's more kitschy than a beaded curtain?  How about one made with Pom Poms!



I strung black yarn with pom poms of various sizes and spaced them out.  I was going to string them tightly together, but I liked the bubbly look this gave it. . .and my fingers hurt from stringing pom poms.


i laid the strings out on the floor and hot glued them to big fat popsicle sticks to make the curtain "rod."  then i tucked the whole shebang up into the workings of my stupid vertical blinds.  I think it's much improved, don't you?


i used some jersey loops laced together to make the curtain tie-back.  neato! 


here are some more close-ups.

i broke two needles and burned myself with hot glue.  pretty normal crafting day for me, though.

i hope you like it!

yes i went through each pom pom. . .that's how i ended up breaking the needles. . .the smaller pom poms didn't want to cooperate and i got frustrated and wiggled the needle too much.

incidentally, the pom poms are suspended of their own free will. . .i didn't knot the yarn between each pom, though you could certainly do that.
