Thankfully threaded rod is sold in a variety of lengths so all you have to do is pick the size or sizes you want.  It is inexpensive, too.  Twist on a nut on one side of the rod so that you can string the beads on and they won't fall off.  Make sure to have enough exposed rod to stick into the ground and it will be able to hold up the weight of the beads.  The cabinet pull gets twisted on the top when you are finished.  Make sure to tighten up the nut when you are done so the beads are all nice and snug.

I think it would be a good idea to use thick knitting needles as they already have atop and you wouldn't have to buy top knobs.Maybe use medicine bottle caps and form painted .flowers as a topper,I found pony beads that turn color from white to several colors when put in the sun.,as you see I can't wait to make these,wish me luck and thanks sweety.

If one can't find threaded rod, then maybe you could use any small diameter rod and just place a large "bead" of hot glue in place of the nut? I am anxious to make these! <3
