Steps on how to hang beaded curtains
Step #1: Take the measurement of the window/door frame
Use the measuring tape and measure the length (width) of the window/door frame horizontally, where you want the bead curtain to cover.

You might have hanged it. This process is one of the first steps to consider when learning “how to hang beaded curtains.”
Step #2: Mark the point where you will hang the curtain rod
To do this, hold your curtain rod and place it a few inches above the window/door frame, where the beaded curtains will start flowing towards the ground.
You can invite a friend to hold one end of the rod while you hold another end so that it can give a straight and accurate lining, then mark the two points with a curtain on the wall.
Step #3: Drill and attach the curtain rod to the wall
