Fleurette Rodrigue. Curtain. December 13th , 2017.
So the finished width that you want to gather each of your pair of curtains is 52 inches. The more you learn how to hang curtains, the more this becomes second nature. Before you hang curtains.stop and check! Before you start to hang your curtain you need to lay your curtain down on a table or the floor and check the gathered width is about right. Then if to narrow then pull out the tape a little. If to wide then gather in the tape a little more. what about the surplus cord? Finally sorting out all that surplus cord and evening up the pleats in the tape.
Velvet curtains or Organza curtains are two different but elegant curtain materials. Velvet curtains give you a shining and enhanced look that is different from the other fabrics. The rich ambience of velvet is popularly known as these fabrics are usually used in dress material. Velvet curtains give you a lovely and richly outstanding ambience. It has also the added attraction of availability in varied colors. It is mainly used in formal settings and is very popular as home theater curtains. Another variety of curtains is the Organza/tissue curtains. This cloth is light in material, and the curtains are best used in summers as the lighter colors will give a bright look to the room. You can also use the curtains in conjunction with the heavier variety like the velvet or heavy drapes. One particular type that is currently in fashion is embroidered Organza curtains, that are used alternatively with contrasting color heavier drapes like silk or cotton. Whatever be your choice of curtains, you must decide the overall combination you need before making your purchase. You would do well to make an informed decision. Use the web to find adequate information on the issue, consult an interior decorator or even the salesman at the home décor store, who generally have a good idea about such issues.
Once the curtain has been hung it is ready to be embellished. Start with the left or right curtain first and open it up so that it is spread out wide across the window, this way so you can see exactly where you have made the marks and where you are going to place the roses. For this purpose I am going to attach six roses to each curtain using a sequence of three. Remove the plastic backing from the rose by giving it a good pull; your rose will now be in two parts, (the backing and also the rose and stem). Start at the top left hand corner of the curtain, using the awl push a hole through the organza where you have made your first mark, NB its easier and is likely to make a cleaner hole if you hold the fabric on either side of the mark that you made whilst pushing the awl through. Once the hole has been made (ensure that it is big enough for the stem to go through) push the stem of the rose through the hole and secure the rose by pushing the plastic backing back onto the stem which will now be facing the back of the curtain, push it up as far as it will go, this will ensure that the rose wont fall off when its being laundered.
Medium weight curtains use nylon hooks, stronger than plastic. They will flex without breaking. Heavy curtains use metal nickel hooks, they are bit fiddly to handle they all stick together the box. Just like the Chinese puzzles I had as a child. Curtain hooks for bucram headed curtains You will need what are called "pin hooks" simply because they have a sharp pin which pierces through the fabric and bucram on the back of the curtain header. This kind of heading makes for the best looking curtains. As always the best all ways costs that bit more.
Follow the same steps for the curtain on the right, NB In interior design balance is very important, it creates a sense of harmony, therefore, what you do to the left curtain do the same to the right so that they will appear unified. There are many variations on the embellishments that you could use. Feathers work really well and so do mirrors, bearing in mind that feathers would have to be stitched onto the curtain and mirrors will have to be glued on. NB When gluing on the mirrors first glue a piece of fabric onto the back of the mirror, then glue the mirror onto the curtain; this will create traction between the mirror and the curtain, enabling the mirror to stick easily. Also, use glue that will become transparent once it has dried, impasto gel is extremely effective when used as glue for this type of application. Keep in mind light cool colours open a space and deep dark colours make the space appear smaller, this would also apply to the colour of curtains that you choose to use so based on your décor and where you are placing the curtain choose your colours wisely. This curtain is very simple to make and does not take much time or skill to assemble, that being said, it is always better not to rush any decorating project; you would want to take your time and enjoy the creative process.
