What you will need:

9 ft x12 ft Medium Duty Canvas DropCloth
1/4 inch rope
Electrical tape (available in black or white)
Hemp Cord
1/2 in. Stainless Steel Crimp Sleeve
#4 Zinc-Plated Steel Screw Eye


Pre-Stained Premium Cedar Wood & Aluminum 14 x 12 Outdoor Pavilion Gazebo

After buying the materials noted above, you can spray paint the screw eyes and crimp sleeves. Depending on your preference, the steel color could be left alone or it could be spray painted in black or other neutral colors, such as white or bronze.


Cut the rope to your liking, fold the end and tightly wrap the electrical tape around it. Then, cut a small piece of hemp cord and add it to the end of the rope as you continue to wrap the electrical tape around it.


Add the crimp sleeves to the ends. It should fit snugly. If it is too loose, add more electrical tape. If the fit is too tight, just redo it by wrapping the electrical tape more tightly.


Wrap the electrical tape around the end of the rope. Add the piece of hemp rope. Then, wrap more electrical tape to secure it. Lastly, wrap some hemp rope around the entire end to cover the electrical tape.


Install the screw eye to your preferred location.

Install curtain rods of your choice, add some drapery rings with clips, and hang canvas dropcloths.
