Cheapo Curtain Rod Finials

When we decided to brighten things up in the living room, one of the first things to go were the dark burgundy curtains. I love them but they made the room a bit dark and depressing.

So I picked up some basic white curtains at Target and when I put them up I realized that the scroll curtain rod ends needed to go. They don't really fit with the new style and I never really liked them anyway. They were way too small for such large windows.

I was too cheap to pay $10 a pair for new ones so I decided to make my own! I picked up these 1-1/4" Head Beads in the wood section at the craft store and spray painted them black.

They fit perfectly on one end and for the smaller end I used a small piece of the caulking cord that we had laying around in the basement. It's the same stuff I used to secure the curtain rods. I just wrapped a piece around the end of the rod and slid the curtain rod end on over it.

I really like the simplicity of them. Even more than that, I love the price! For three pairs, I paid a total of $2 instead of $30!

Any Ideas on finials that would fit 3/4" conduit?
