Pom-pom Passage

This plush portal - a new take on the beaded curtain - has a magic quality: its parts appear to be floating in space.

Materials

  • Monofilament fishing line
  • Darning needle
  • Pom-poms (ours range from 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
  • Tension rod
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape

Instructions

  1. For each strand of pom-poms, double-knot the end of a 5½-foot length of monofilament fishing line.
  2. Use a darning needle to thread on one to three pom-poms at a time. Leave 2 to 3 inches of line between each cluster and make a single knot below each cluster to hold it in place. Leave the last 6 inches of the line bare.
  3. Tie each strand to a tension rod, trim any excess line, then use clear tape to secure the strands.
