Another tip: You can add a plastic or wooden panel to the back of the upper part of the curtain so that it does not warp and therefore remains rigid.

Now all you have to do is admire the result of your work and why not, for example, complete the whole thing with a few accessories to personalize the decor such as family photos using clips and string or even place some garlands on it to show it off even more.

Fixing on a curtain rod

It can also be ideal if you plan to use your curtain to separate a room or hide a corner where objects are piled up that spoil the aesthetic side of the room.
