Components required:

1. Scarf holder
2. Decorative hooks
3. Fabric
4. Paper

How to get started:

- Build the framework: Fix decorative hooks or a scarf holder above the upper corner of the window frame. If you like an arched look; you can attach an additional hook above the center point of your window frame.
Get your stuff ready: Iron out your swag with a warm iron and let it cool for some time. After it has been cooled place the curtain on a flat surface.

- Give it into the shape: Now start to fold your curtain back and forth, start from the fish tail side, to resemble a Japanese fan or accordion. You can give variety to the folds by trying different widths of the fold as per your liking.

- Keep the fold in place: Support the folds with paper stripes. Cut down two or more paper stripes and place them around the folds so that they may remain in place. Try tying the paper band without creasing the fabric of the swag.

- Seek assistance: Ask your friend or anyone around you to help you bring about the curtain to the hooks you had placed above the corners of the window. Make sure the fabric is not damaged during the process and that it remains off the floor. Now you have two options: you can either insert the fabric through the holder’s hole or rest it on the hooks. Once it’s done, cut away the paper bands

- Time to fix it in place: The final step is to arrange the swag in a manner that the drooped section of the swag hangs to the preferred depth in tune with the window frame. Now gently pull the uppermost line of the swag to form a straight line across the top. Now stand back at some distance from the window in order to look at the symmetry of the two trails of the swag hanging from the either corner of the window. In case you prefer the asymmetrical outlook then you can pull down one fishtail end a little more as compared to the other end.
