Lately I’ve been all tied up in knots. Beautiful nautical knots. While planning my curtains for Pollen Proofing my Screened Porch I looked around for some drapery tiebacks online and was surprised at how expensive they can be!
While searching through listings on Etsy I found a set of beautiful soft cotton rope ties that I felt would be perfect for my coastal themed screened porch. However, at almost $50 a pair they were way out of my price range. I didn’t want to end up spending more for the tiebacks than for ALL the drapes combined!
At first I thought I might simply go down to my local hardware store and buy some rope to make my own but the rope they carry is stiff and rough. So after Googling “Cotton Rope” I was led to Knot & Rope Supply and found exactly what I was looking for. I love Internet shopping don’t you?
So this is all you need:
- 5/8″ 3-strand cotton rope (about 1 yard per tieback)
- Scotch Tape
And this is the “how to”:
- Cut as many pieces of rope as you will need with scissors. Yes, scissors! The softness of this rope makes it super easy to cut.
Note: These tiebacks were used on drop cloth fabric and have stayed perfectly in place. I’m not sure how it would work on a slipperier fabric.
Wow! Just WOW! Feeling blessed by God who inspires me in my thriftiness!
