  • Measuring tape

  • Crepe-paper curtain kit or roll of black crepe-paper streamer and monofilament

  • Scissors

  • Painter's tape

  • Double-sided tape

  • Bat garland


  1. Measure window frame's length and cut strips to fit.

  2. Gently stretch and twist strip of crepe paper. Cut and tear edges of strips to create a ragged appearance.

  3. Thread monofilament through strips to hang curtain, or apply painter's tape to window frame and then apply double-sided tape on top of that to hold strips.

  4. To create the tie-back, use craft bat garland, cut to about 5 bats. Loop garland around curtain and attach it to the window frame using double-sided tape.
