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.
