How to Make Your Own Roping Curtain Tiebacks

 

Curtain tiebacks are versatile, decorative elements that can be used in many different ways to help establish a style in a room. Because a curtain tieback can be made of almost any flexible material, the options for how to use a tieback expand greatly. Gone are the days when rope and tassels were the only acceptable choice. In today's modern homes, it is possible to use steampunk jewellery in a bedroom and raffia in a living room. Either can enhance the room and add the personal touch that transforms a room from typical to unique

 

  • Measure and cut three 36-inch lengths of 1/4-inch-diameter nylon clothesline rope with a ruler and scissors. Hold the rope length ends in your hand. Wrap masking tape around the three ropes for a 4-inch section beginning at the rope ends.

  • Braid the three rope lengths, by moving the outer ropes toward the centre, until the entire length is braided. Attach the rope lengths together with a 4-inch section of masking tape.

  • Measure and cut a 12-inch length of rope. Fold it in half and glue the rope ends along the 4-inch masking tape area on opposite sides of the braided rope using epoxy glue; this will be the tieback hook.

 

  • Measure and cut a 24-inch length of rope. Wrap it around and perpendicular to the braid while attaching it with epoxy glue over the masking tape, completely covering the glued sections of the tieback hook. Cut off any excess rope with scissors. Let the glue dry for 24 hours. Repeat all steps for a second rope curtain tieback.

 

Use curtain tiebacks in a family room or den that has a masculine flavour by dressing down solid colour drapes using old leather belts. Use a plain curtain tieback post or wrought iron style and tie the belts if they are pliable enough. This is best for curtains that are not regularly opened or closed. Make double loops for tiebacks that open and close daily.
