Canvas Painters Cloth Event Draperies

Here is a quick and easy solution to adding draperies to an event or party decor.
Why not try a canvas painters cloth?


Often times in a large space you need to help ground the area or soften the look.
A great solution is painters cloth. 
It also helps add antoher textural element to this outdoor event.
You can usually pick them up at your local hardware store for between $12-$20 bucks.



We actually have four here.
As you can see we created pleats at the top to help finish the look.
To hang the cloth simply use a staple gun and staple the pleats as you go.
Another tip...don't worry to much about the wrinkles.
Once you hang them and they have hung for a few hours the wrinkles will mostly come out.
If wrinkles persist I would suggest using a steamer, much quicker than ironing.


We didn't even bother sewing the cloths together.
We used simple jute to tie the drapes back.
It created a simple casual look and didn't break the bank.
It is also an easy fabric to dress up or down.

  4. I had a very similar idea with using this cloth for outdoor curtains, except I'm wanting to dye or paint them first. Thanks for the post!
