If you are using curtain wire go to the top of the window frame and attach one screw eye on the left and right hand side of the frame. Ready made organza curtains should have tabs at the top, attach hooks to both ends of the curtain wire and then thread the wire through the tabs of both curtains and attach the wire to the screw eyes on the window frame. If you are using a wooden dowel use cup hooks and not screw eyes for the dowel to rest on. Thread the dowel through the tabs and place on cup hooks.
There are many variations on the embellishments that you could use. Feathers work really well and so do mirrors, bearing in mind that feathers would have to be stitched onto the curtain and mirrors will have to be glued on. NB When gluing on the mirrors first glue a piece of fabric onto the back of the mirror, then glue the mirror onto the curtain; this will create traction between the mirror and the curtain, enabling the mirror to stick easily. Also, use glue that will become transparent once it has dried, impasto gel is extremely effective when used as glue for this type of application.
