Decorating With A Window Scarf
Today’s window scarves come in a variety of fabric choices and colors. A window scarf is often lightweight pieces of fabric that look the same from both the front and the back. When compared to other traditional treatments, scarves provide a simple and economical solution for covering most window openings. You can use a window scarf in a number of ways depending on your personal taste and decor. A window scarf add a soft touch to any decor including formal and traditional styles.

There are some ways you need to do to use a window scarf. A simple way to use a window scarf is by draping it over a curtain rod. Curtain rods can be found in most department, home design and discount stores. There are many styles and materials, such as plastic, metal and bamboo. Some curtain rods also have decorative caps on the end. You can either do one long swag (curve), or several shorter swags by looping the fabric around the rod. This works best with window scarves that have a bit of weight on them, as it is easy for a lighter-weight scarf to slip off of the curtain rod.

For a removable, inexpensive way to hang your window scarves, consider using adhesive hooks. This is a handy option for those who live in a rented home, as the adhesive hooks won’t put holes in the wall or damage the paint. Figure out how many swags you want your scarves to have, and then multiply that number by two. This figure is the number of adhesive hooks you will need to buy.Placing adhesive hooks is very simple, and takes less than 5 minutes. Depending upon the brand that you buy, you will likely need to apply the removable adhesive to the back of the hook, and then stick it firmly to your wall. Place the hook no more than 4 inches above your window. This method works well with lighter-weight window scarves, such as silks, as the hooks cannot hold a great amount of weight.
