Door and sidelight panels are held in
place by two rods, one at the top and one at the bottom of each panel.
Begin the process of hanging your panels by installing the top rod.
Slip the top rod through
the top rod pocket of the panel and hang the panel in place.
Slip the bottom rod
through the bottom rod pocket, and with the panel hanging straight,
mark the location of the bottom brackets. The bottom brackets and rod
should be positioned to hold the panel in place without excess tension.
Install the bottom
brackets and attach the bottom rod to the brackets with the panel
mounted on the bottom rod.
For an hourglass effect,
slip a tieback around the center of the panel and overlap the Velcro
ends to secure them.
The balloon curtain is designed to be
easily adjustable, up and down, to achieve a pleasing look. It is not,
however, designed to be adjusted frequently like a shade.
Here are some hints on how to use
Find the small plastic
bag, packed with your order, that contains the plastic split rings.
These will be used to adjust the length of your balloon curtain.
Lay your balloon, face
down, on a table or the floor, and notice the horizontal rows of rings
sewn in the back of the curtain.
Slip one of the split
rings onto each of the attached rings along the bottom row of rings.
Using the split rings
now attached to the bottom row of rings, slip each split ring onto the
next ring above.Repeat this process, moving up one ring at a time,
until your curtain reaches the desired length.
Gather your curtain onto
your rod, mount the rod on the brackets, and then arrange the curtain
evenly, side to side.
Puff out each section of
your balloon curtain from behind to achieve desired look.
Fishtail Swags & Scarves are
easy to hang. Here are some hints.
If necessary, iron both
sides of the swag, following the fabric care instructions in this
If your swag is
reversible, choose the side you wish to feature and lay the swag flat,
featured side down, on a large table or on the floor.
Starting with the
longest side of the swag ... the tail side ... fold the entire length
of that side of the fabric over about 4" to 6". Keeping the folds even,
fold over and under, like a fan, until all of the fabric is folded.
When you are finished, the featured side should show on both the top
and bottom of the fan.
Drape the folded swag over your swag
holders or decorative pole rod, with the long ends positioned against
window frame to show folds in front.
Holding one side of the swag in each
hand, adjust the long ends to be of approximately equal length; then
pull gently on the long ends to achieve a straight line in the fabric
that crosses the top of your window. When using swag holders and no
rod, it may be necessary to use a few pushpins or thumbtacks underneath
the fabric and along the top of your window frame, to keep the top line
of the fabric as horizontal as you would like. On wider windows, you
may also use a standard curtain rod, hidden underneath the swag, to
support the swag horizontally.
With the length and horizontal line
adjusted, smooth and soften the folds to achieve a graceful look.
