Clip rings make hanging curtains quick and easy. They also provide a number of ways to give curtains a different look and style in no time at all. With clips available in all finishes, sizes and styles, you are sure to find just the right ones to complement the curtains of your choice.

Traditional Styling

Attach seven rings evenly across the width of your curtain panel, and slip the rings onto a curtain rod.

Swag Styling

Clip only four rings across the width of a curtain, allowing the extra material between each ring to swag into a U-shaped fold.

Fold-over Styling

Shorten a too-long curtain, purposely buy or make your curtains too long so that you can flip one edge over and expose a contrasting colour on the top of your drapery. Fold over one edge so that it makes a self-valance, and clip the rings onto the fold of the fabric. Slip the rings onto a rod as usual for a layered look.

Ribbon Ties With Curtain Rod

Clip your rings onto your curtain as you normally would, but add a length of ribbon onto each ring. Tie the ribbons onto the curtain rod.

Ribbon Ties With Push Pin Hook

Attach the clip rings onto the width of your curtain. Attach a length of ribbon to each ring, tying each into a bow. Twist the ribbon-ring so the bow is located at the bottom of the ring. Push decorative pushpin hooks into the wall, and drape the top of each ribbon over each hook. This treatment is effective only when you want the curtains to stationary as you can't draw them open or closed.

Drawer Knob Styling

Affix extra-large clip rings evenly across the width of your curtain. Screw small, decorative, dresser-drawer knobs into the wall at desired intervals. Hang rings over the knobs for a static, stationary look.

Easy Pleated Look

Attach pleating tape to the top back of your curtain. Using the manufacturer's directions, install pronged drapery hooks into the tape. Hang each French pleated drapery hook into a clip ring clipped evenly across the width of the curtain.
