General Tips When Using Beaded Fringe Trim On Your Projects

Create A Beaded Fringe Tablecloth
View DecoratingStudio's Beaded Fringe Collections

Add beaded fringe around the bottom edge of a tablecloth for an elegant dining room that will glitter in the candlelight
or trim a patio or poolside tablecloth and it will sparkle in the sunlight.

Tips

  • When you add beaded fringe to the bottom edge of an outdoor tablecloth for your deck or patio, the weight of the beaded trim will keep the table cloth edges from blowing up in the wind. Use sheer organza or even chic vinyl!
  • Even if the tablecloth that your adding the fringe to says "Machine Washable", you will want to hand wash it to protect the fringe from tangling in the washing machine.
  • Definitely use acrylic beaded fringe - not glass beads for this bathroom project!

How To Instructions

  • Measure the bottom edge of the cloth, all the way around. You will want the fringe to go all the way around the bottom edge of all sides of the tablecloth. Most tablecloths come in one of the following standard sizes:
Rectangular: 54"x72", 72"x90", 72"x108", 72"x126", 72x144"
Round: 60", 72", 90"
Square: 45" 54"
  • Pin the satin ribbon of the fringe to the bottom side of the tablecloth, adjusting the ribbon so that it is hidden when viewing the cloth on the right side. There is no right side or wrong side to the beads; however, one side of the ribbon may show threads, if so, place the "thread" or wrong side of the ribbon against the wrong side of the tablecloth. This will give you a nice satin ribbon edge on the back side of the hem. It is usually easier to pin a small section at a time (about 1' - 2' sections). By using thread in the same color as the tablecloth, stitch the satin part of the ribbon to the underneath side of the tablecloth hem. This can be done on a sewing machine or by hand. If you use a sewing machine, make sure that the foot around the needle doesn't press down on any of the beads as it is moving.
  • Gently ease the satin ribbon around the curves of an oval or circular cloth, and at the corners of a square or rectangular cloth, make a small "v" pleat in the ribbon without cutting the ribbon.
  • Once the beaded fringe is attached to the tablecloth, you may want to add a decorative trim, such as gimp or braid along the hem, on the right side of the cloth. If you do add trim, and you want to hand wash the cloth, make sure that the top trim will not fade or shrink.
  • You now have a gorgeous tablecloth for elegant or casual affairs.

General Tips When Using Beaded Fringe Trim
On Your Projects

  • Some beaded fringe is made of acrylic and some of glass. The new acrylic beaded fringes have the sparkle of glass without the weight or the worry of breakage. Either is fine, however, some applications should definitely use acrylic beads due to the danger of breakage with glass beads. All of DecoratingStudio.com beaded fringe is made of a high quality, crystal clear acrylic.
  • Often, the stated length of beaded fringe will include the tape or ribbon at the top. If length is critical, double check to see if the ribbon is included in the length dimension or not. All of Decorating Studio's stated beaded fringe lengths include the top ribbon or tape in the dimension.
    There are no right sides or wrong sides as far as the beaded part of beaded fringe goes; however sometimes, one side of the ribbon or tape holding the beads, may show the threads that are holding the beads to the ribbon. If the ribbon or tape part of your fringe has threads showing on one side, you should attach it to your projects so that the threads are down, hidden from view.
  • If you are applying your beaded fringe to an object with glue, use a non-toxic, craft glue that dries clear and flexible. We recommend Aleene's Original Tacky Glue. You may want to secure the ribbon or tape to the item with straight pens until the glue dries to assure that the fringe doesn't slip out of place while drying.
  • When applying beaded fringe with glue, it is helpful to first lay the ribbon or tape trim of the fringe on the item on which you are gluing it, then take a pencil and lightly mark the width of the ribbon on the item. This will assure that you have covered the area where the ribbon or tape will be with enough glue to secure the ribbon or tapes edges.
  • When you are attaching beaded trim to an object that will get wet or requires washing, generally you will want to stitch the ribbon on instead of gluing, however, if you are attaching it to a glass or hard object that will get wet, use a suitable clear waterproof glue. These types of glues are often toxic, so use carefully and never on eating utensils.
  • If you are attaching your beaded trim with a sewing machine, make sure that the beads are clear of the foot pedal, to eliminate breakage.
  • Most beaded fringe has a decorative ribbon at the top, to which the beads are attached. In most cases, the ribbon is attractive enough to show. If you want another type of trim over the ribbon, you can easily attach a more decorative ribbon, braid or gimp over the beaded fringes' ribbon once you complete attaching the fringe.
  • Never leave the ribbon or tape edge of the fringe exposed. Always allow a little extra so that you can turn the edge into a fold and secure with glue or thread.
  • When measuring a round or oval object to determine how much fringe will be needed for a project (such as a lampshade edge), it is helpful to use a cloth tape measure and straight pins to secure it in place as you are measuring.
  • While working on your project, if you find that midway through your beaded fringe one of the fringes is missing, cut one beaded fringe from the edge (with the ribbon or tape at the top) and sew it to the fringe area that is missing the beads.
