Video #13: Do It Yourself Drapes | Window Treatment Ideas With Swags, Scrolls and Holdbacks


So today our plan is to go ahead and demonstrate
how to use our captivating scrolls. In order to do this I’m going to show you
not only how to use them but how to go about hanging a scarf from it. This is one of our do-it-yourself packages
that we get a lot of demand for. It’s a unique design and it’s very, very
easy to do. This particular one, our crystal drapery scrolls
have a wire on the back of them that sleeves into a little pocket and all I have to do
is just take it out and sleeve it out and sleeve my fabric through it. So what I have done is simply put a small
pocket on the end of the drape just enough for my wire to slip into this little pocket. Once you have slipped the fabric through it
all you have to do is simply put that back into place. And that’s all you have to do. So we now have a fabric that’s hanging from
the scroll. Now the next thing I’m going to do is put
the sleeves back onto the arms. These sleeves are made in 3.5 inch and 5.5
inch projections. So what I do is put up the first bracket and
this will allow me to determine the angle. I may want it at a higher angle or a lower
angle. I usually like to have them at this angle
which is not too high or too low. And then all I do is by simply keeping them
in this position, all I have to do is go ahead and put in my second screw. Once I’ve done that it’s pretty much secure
in place, it’s not going anywhere. And now I have a fabric that is just hanging
from our scrolls. All we have to do at this time by simply adjusting
a little bit of these pleats that we have across here by keeping them even and making
sure they are hanging even. And one way to do that is simply to pull on
the fabric. For the sake of demonstration we did not hem
the edges of this fabric. It would be highly recommended that you go
ahead and hem the edges of these but we can hide that and as we go along I’m going to
show you how we do that. Since we did not hem the fabric, I’m going
to go ahead and just take the first fold and fold it inward to hide that raw edge. Then I’m going to work my way towards the
center in an angle. Just keep going up at an angle to get that
swag look. As you can see, this is already starting to
form really nicely. Now that I have pulled it to the center, all
I have to do is just make sure that this hem is on the first fold is hidden underneath
and all I need to do now is just scarf it over my holdback. In order to have it on the top all I do is
just pull the first fold. That will give me a very nice tail as well
as a nice swag. If I want to go ahead and pull any pleats
out I do this simply by adjusting my hands long ways I can go ahead and put creases in
it to create my folds. So what I did here is added a little bit of
trim without even sewing it on there. I just simply laid it on the bottom and this
will give it a little more enhanced look. Now you have a very simple window treatment,
simply put up and it looks very elegant. This is using our scrolls as well as using
our holdbacks. I’m going to put up a holdback. I’m going to show you how to dress our fabrics
over our holdbacks. In this particular case I want to do about
7.5 inches because there seems to be a little bit of depth in the wall. And once I’ve done that I simply put the
holdback on there. For this particular purpose you are going
to use the same technique. As you can see, the drapes are hanging from
the same scroll. And all we are going to do is we are going
to go ahead and use the same motion by going from the bottom and working out way up and
once we have done that just simply draping it over the holdbacks. SO By doing this particular look, you can
use these holdbacks and scrolls combined on larger windows as stationary panels and it
will provide you with a very dramatic look. This is another job done by Galaxy Design. You are welcome to visit us at our site www.Galaxy-Design.com. We look forward to seeing you in our showroom;
