Simple tips to hang a window scarf

modern-curtains Anyone who has tried to hang a window scarf knows how frustrating is to control the fabrics and the same time draping the swags. You should then consider the following tips:

  • Begin by finding the right fabric, it should be soft and have a flowing drape. It could either be silk, satin, sheer or even a lightweight chenille.
  • Ensure to find the right size of the scarf. It should not be so long that it ends up looking sloppy; neither should it be short to look skimpy.
  • Finally, remember to use a fabric covered foam rod. It simplifies and makes beautiful swags. The foam rods allow one to control the shape and size of the swags by pinning the fabric to it and securing each fold.

Stretch it out and fold it in half-length wise. In the next step, ensure that you take the very middle of the fold and put it over the rod from the back. Then pull it a little way over.

Use the edges of the centre to cover the ends of the rod, shape them the way you want.
