Often, people who are fortunate enough to have large open space outside their home like using different ideas for making their garden look attractive. A very beautiful and popular idea employed for that purpose is incorporating romantic gazebos. A gazebo is simply a free standing construction that offers a bit of privacy while relaxing in your garden. Many freestanding arrangements like kiosk, folly, pagoda, pergola, alambra, rotunda and belvederes also fall in the category of gazebo. Installation and subsequent decoration of such structures is not a difficult job and an average householder can do it easily. Addition of some pleasant curtains helps to enhance the beauty of a gazebo.
Whether you get an idea of designing your gazebo from the Internet or you plan it on your own, you could surely include curtains therein to enhance its appeal. Many people consider the best option is to buy some ready to use curtains. Nevertheless, you can always make curtains of your own after you have completed the construction of your gazebo. If you decide to make the curtains on your own, the first step will be to assess your requirements of fabric, which is not difficult at all, as all that you need to measure is the height and width of your gazebo. To the measured height, you need to add three inches. This extra length is distributed at the top and bottom of the curtain. One inch at the bottom goes for making hem, while two inches at the top is utilized for making pocket of the curtain panels. The width of the fabric that you buy needs to be one and a half times the measured width and an extra inch on either side of the fabric for hemming.
Now, you get ready for sewing the curtains that go well with the design of your gazebo. It is recommended to use straight vertical seams all through the sewing length of the fabric. First, you sew a two inch wide pocket for your curtain all along the length of the fabric. That makes the top end of your curtain ready. In case you have thicker curtain rod, you may need to increase the width of pocket, which means you’ll also need to buy more length of fabric for making your curtain. Next, you prepare hemming on both the sides and the bottom of the curtain. Once you have completed your sewing, it is time to attach the curtain to the curtain rod at the top inside frame of the gazebo.
That was the easiest way of making gazebo curtains at home. You can further decorate your gazebo curtain by including gazebo curtain hooks, decorative panels, Velcro panels which you can easily procure from the market.
