Measure Thickness of Drapery
Use measuring tape to determine thickness of each drapery panel once properly gathered.
Wrap Belt Around Drapery
Gently pull drapery panels away from window and wall, then wrap belt around circumference.
Tighten and Mark Belt
With belt securely wrapped around drapery panel, tighten until drapery is properly pinched, creating an hourglass shape. Use marker to mark placement for additional hole which will keep the belt properly fit to the drapery panel.
Bring a dapper and dashing touch to window treatments with tiebacks made from patterned neckties.
