The old fashioned way to tie curtains with the same color strips of matching fabric is gone and new styles have emerged to keep your window treatments eye appealing and stylish!  The latest fashion of curtain tie-backs includes many types and styles which not only allow air flow or light to come in through a window, but define your personal style.

All you need is to think creatively and use tie-backs as an enhancement to the overall décor of your room design.  Here are some great tie back ideas for any curtain design project!

String of Beads

Strings with beads, shiny crystal, and soft pastel plastic to a larger wooden or glass beads are a fun way to tie back curtains.  They can even be pinned with a complimentary design brooch.

Antique Doorknobs

These make unusual curtain tie backs.  Find the perfect match knobs and attach to the wall near the window.  The knob will be used to hold the curtains.  You can get knobs made of glass or interesting designed works.

Drapery Medallions

Drapery Medallions can be a great way to tie back your curtains.  Medallions come in an array of shapes, sizes, and finishes to match the décor of any room and are extremely versatile for window treatments that involve heavy drapes.

Feather Boas

Feather boas are a great curtain tie back for a little girl’s princess bedroom or a trendy playroom design.  Be sure to tie the boa loosely so that it does not lose its fluffiness.


Belts create a functional, interesting curtain tieback.  Since a belt is adjustable, it makes fitting it to any size design project incredibly easy.  Belts can be a great tieback in a man’s office or even a man cave (I know quite a few with windows!!)

Plant Hooks

Plant hooks also make great drapery tiebacks.  These are a very inexpensive solution for tiebacks that create a trendy, green look.  Plant hooks come in an array of styles and finishes to compliment the design of any room.  They can be found at your local hardware or lawn and garden store.

For The Kiddos

Soft toys with an elastic loop attached can make a creative and adorable decoration for any child’s room, but particularly a nursery.  A zoo design would look great with lion and tiger tiebacks!
