  • How to make a set of curtain tie backs. Quick & Easy No Sew Braided Curtain Tiebacks - Step 1
    Step 1

    To begin, cut four 50cm/20″ long (approx) pieces of sash cord. Cut another two pieces of sash cord that are 70cm/27.5″ long.

    Group together three pieces of sash cord: Two regular (50cm/20″) pieces and one long (70cm/27.5″) piece.

    Create a little loop at one end of the longer piece of sash cord. Use jute rope to tie the cord in place, as per the image.

    Put your remaining two pieces of sash cord on top of the jute rope. Wrap the jute rope around all three pieces of the sash cord until you have something like this:

    Braid the three pieces of sash cord together, as you would if braiding your own hair. I just used the standard three strand braid.

    Step 4

    Stop braiding when you have an inch or so of the shorter sash cords to go.

    Grab a piece of jute rope and tie all three pieces of sash cord together. As you did at the top of the curtain tieback, use the longer piece of sash cord to create a loop. Tie the loop in place with jute twine. Use the remaining jute twine to tie the three strands of sash cord together. Tie off with a few knots, snipping off any excess twine.

    And with that, you're finished!
