Regarding this, where should I put my curtain tie backs?
Hang each tieback a third of the way up from the bottom of the curtain. If, for example, the drape is 100 inches long, you would place the tieback 33 inches from the bottom.
Subsequently, question is, how do you use curtain holdbacks? Mark the spot on the wall lightly in pencil. Measure 12 inches up from the bottom of the window or the curtains if the curtains are 55 inches long. Stand back while a friend pulls the curtain open at this level, and adjust it as necessary. Mark the wall at the desired level for the tieback.
In this regard, how do you make curtain tie backs with rope?
Start with one piece of rope and make sure there's enough to loop around and hold back each curtain. Cut six strings of rope and two pieces of yarn so they're all the same length. Moving a quarter of the way down the rope, knot the strings and start braiding them together.
How high should curtain tie backs be?
Standard lengths for café curtains (commonly used in kitchens) are 24 or 36 inches. Set the height of your tieback. Hang each tieback a third of the way up from the bottom of the curtain. For example, if your curtain is 84 inches long, you would place the tieback about 28 inches from the bottom.
