Decorative Pulls

It's easy to add or replace a shade pull. Three yards of satin cording will cover a washer or plastic ring with a diameter of 2 inches or less.


  1. Step 1

    Leaving an 8-inch tail, tie the cord around the ring in an overhand knot, and pull the knot to the ring's outer edge.

  2. Step 2

    Continue by passing the long end through ring, around to the other side, and through the cording loop itself.

  3. Step 3

    When ring is covered, leave another 8-inch length before trimming the end.

  4. Step 4


    Thread both ends through grommet, and knot.
