    Other idea - cutting tinsel into 1 metre pieces and hanging them vertically the whole way along, kind of like a tinsel fringe along the curtains, but again how to hang this?
    I can't tie anything onto the curtain rods as the curtain goes over the top of it.....any ideas from some creative hubbers?
    Do you own the house or do you rent? Because if you own you could suspend a long rod (like curtain rod) from the ceiling right infront of your actual curtain rod. Use more than one if you have to.

    If you rent.. I've got nothing

    Default Hosting Xmas - hints and tips!

    @Just*Ace my MIL did something similar to the bauble idea - baubles hanging over a window with slatted blinds. She used thumbtacks along the top of the window frame and then hooked the fishing line/ribbon around the thumb tack. You could also pin them to the back of your curtains... So have them hanging down as you described, but have the fishing line go over the top of the curtains and then just pin on the other side. That way no one will be able to see!

    Genius! Just did a test of fishing line tied to a safety pin pinned at the back, works great and best part is I can get all the baubles on the string then just pin them up the day before! Thanks!
