The carriers normally contain a nylon axle, two free-rolling nylon wheels, a nylon swivel stern that is designed to be tangle-free and steel hooks that are chrome-plated. Nylon materials are used as curtain carriers since they would not easily break or rust and are highly durable. However, the curtain carrier glide could also be made with a nylon swivel, one-piece nylon spool, and steel hook of chrome plating. Another type of curtain carrier is the breakaway carrier, comprised of nylon wheels, hook, and body. The tracking for curtains would vary from one location to another to suit the type of construction of the room.
Light is diffused through sheer/light fabrics and we can therefore use this principle to create a wonderful ambiance within a room. Silk organza or muslin will be ideal fabrics to use but you could also create amazing unconventional window dressings with sari fabric, netting or lace. Browse around at flea markets, thrift stores or garage sales and you’ll be amazed at what you can find that can inspire you to create striking designs for your windows.
NB It is important that you get the sequence 100% correct before you make the marks and the holes, should you realize that you want to change the roses around after the holes have been made you run the risk of having gaping holes in your curtain which could look rather messy. The next step will be to measure the top width of the window frame and then cut the dowel or curtain wire in order to fit (using either a pliers if it is wire or a hand saw if you are cutting the dowel).
12 x artificial roses (can be bought from most Asian outlets, preferably the same or similar color as the organza curtain, using clashing colors can make the curtain appear disjointed and chaotic. NB Be sure that the rose bud can come apart from the plastic backing of the flower, once the rose and the stem is pushed through the curtain the backing has to be placed back onto the stem on the other side of the curtain in order for the rose to be secured into place.
