Tiebacks for Draperies

Traditional fabric tiebacks are always a popular option for providing shape to your draperies. They are often made from the same fabric as the draperies. Sometimes I add decorative cording or trim, fringes, or beads to provide an accent.

Woven Trim Tiebacks

I also like to use a wide woven trim for a tieback instead of a piece of matching fabric. This works whether or not the trim is also used on the draperies.

Tassel Tiebacks are a Common Favorite

I love using tassels as tiebacks because they come in such a variety of sizes, fibers, and colors. I like using both coordinating or contrasting colors to create a great accent to the window.

How to Keep your Tiebacks in Place

Another consideration when choosing tiebacks is how to keep them in place. Many times, small rings on the backs of the tiebacks slip over small hooks that are mounted on the wall. This gives a nice, clean look, but so many other options are available!

Posts with decorative medallions are a wonderful choice. You can get square ones, round ones, metallic ones, painted ones, glass, wood, ceramic, globes, scrollwork, and more.

Posts and decorative curved arms mounted on the inside edge of the drapery can act as tiebacks as well.
