Drapery clips can be used in conventional ways or to make creative window treatments using different fabrics. Use drapery clips at varying distances from the top of the curtain and in back of the curtain to create different looks on existing drapes. Spruce up plain drapes with striking, metallic drapery clips.

Clip pillow cases, vintage grain sacks and pieces of fabrics to curtain rods with drapery clips to create dramatic looks. Make inexpensive copies of expensive drapery brands by finding similar fabric and attaching it to curtain rods with drapery clips. You may finish the fabric by hemming the edges or use the fabric as is. Use objects such as oars or skis as curtain rods using curtain brackets and hang curtains using wide-ringed drapery clips.

Using drapery clips, make pleated drapes with a heavy fabric or lined drapes by tying the top of the drapes with string after creating desired pleats. Remove the string after several weeks, and the pleats should remain permanently in fabric.
