Ring clips in the office of the Modern Farmhouse project.
When using clip rings to hang a curtain panel, how much space do you recommend to have between each clip?
New Richmond, WI
I like to space ring clips approximately four inches apart so that there is a handsome fold between each clip in the drapery panel. Start by clipping each end of the panel. Next, clip the middle. Finally, space the clips evenly apart as close to 4 inches as possible. You will have to make some adjustments to the positioning once the panel is up. With a little bit of guidance, the drapery fabric will fold nicely between each ring.
