Line Fabric Strips

Repeat step 3 with several fabric strips until the tension rod is lined with chiffon fabric. The fabric should take up the width of the window where you will be displaying the cafe curtains.

Hang Curtains

Place the chiffon curtains at the window by holding the rod with one hand on each side and pushing toward the center to compress the tension spring. Place the rod into the opening and release your hands. Make sure the tension rod is in place and adjust as necessary. Note: We placed ours in a rustic kitchen window with vintage, paint-dipped bottles and fresh white carnations.
