Twine Wrapped Curtain rod

So I have come up with a very inexpensive, yet stylish curtain rod for my kitchen and I wanted to share it with you today.


I started off with a plain white cheap-cheap curtain rod.

I wrapped some twine around it. I used at least 200 feet of jute garden twine. It takes some time to do, so if you think you'll try it, think about doing it in front of the t.v. or chatting with friends. Also you'll want to give your hands a rest every so often.

It takes a bit of time, but I think the end result is much more pleasant to look at then the white metal.

And it goes great with my curtains that have a twine stripe sewn into them 
(purchased at World Market).

I think this would also look so great if I used a larger rope.  It would give it a cool nautical look.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Adorable idea! How much friction does the twine give when you try to open/close the curtains now?

  2. Did you glue the curtain rod to the size needed, or did you glue the twine onto the curtain rd?

    1. I glued the twine on the curtain rod. But it might be a good idea to glue the rod the size you need too.

  3. Hi Emily, what gauge/thickness of twine did you use? Thanks!
