Beautiful tassel tiebacks

Tassel tiebacks are elegant, attractive and offer an alternative to a way to keep draperies or curtains secured to one side in order to allow natural light to come into a room. Tassels are beautiful, come in a wide range of cords, colors and designs and often have beads designed into them. They can also be incorporated into home décor, adding a rich touch to furniture, bookcase knobs, ceiling fans or ties on decorative pillows.


Step 1

Using tassel tiebacks make an elegant statement and enhance what they are decorate. You can install window hardware to hold the ends of tassel tiebacks that will be used to secure drapes or curtains that will allow natural light into a room or view out a window. Choose tassel tiebacks that complement, and are appropriate to, the drapes or curtains to be secured back.
