How do I make simple curtain tie backs?
Use a ruler, chopstick, or letter opener. Tuck 1/2 an inch of fabric on the open end in and hand tack it closed, or use hot glue to seal the end. Hand sew on two plastic or wood rings at the ends, or create your knot or bow at the end. Repeat for the second tieback and you’re done!
What length are curtain tie backs?
Most tie backs are 1 to 4 inches wide, but the lengths of the tie backs depend of the amount of curtain being pulled to the side. So it best to have the curtains sewn and installed before making the tie backs. Measure the curtain to determine the amount of fabric needed for the tie back.
How do you tie curtains too long?
An option for fixed panels is to drape clear monofilament or twine over the rod, centered directly above each panel, dangling the ends to tieback height or higher or lower, as needed. Wrap one end around the panel, hoist the fabric to the desired height and tie the string ends together to secure the look.
