Step 1: Making the Chains
Create looped cable tie chains the length of your window. You can use one solid color for the entire curtain or alternate colors throughout the chain. Depending on the size of your window, you may want to create between 10 and 20 chains.
Step 2: Attach Chains to Rod and Window
Slide zip tie chains onto curtain rod or tension rod and tighten against window. Straighten chains evenly across window. Make sure tension rod is able to secure the weight of the cable tie chains.
Step 3: Creating a Tieback (Optional)
If you want to create a tieback for your new ziptie curtain, you'll need to make one more small chain, either a solid color or multiple. Wrap the small chain around the dangling curtain chains and pull them towards the edge of your window. Mark with a pen or pencil your desired mounting location. Insert a thumbtack, nail or hook where you have marked the wall. Hang your small chain tieback onto thumbtack or nail or hook.
