For making your own outdoor curtains use the same idea for an interior curtain utilizing a curtain rod and fabric but apply the same technique to the exterior. An easy method for creating an enduring system is to stretch a stainless cable across the top of the window utilizing two eyehook lags. Get lags that are approximately one to one-and-a-half inches long so you will have room to work with the stretched cable. Cut your fabric to fit the area you are going to cover and sew a hem all around. Make room for pleats if you are planning to create that style of appearance. Place grommets in the top hem of the fabric and thread these through the cable before making the final stretch and attachment of the cable. Use this same idea for patios, pergolas, or any outdoor area including windows.
