How do I keep my outdoor curtains from blowing?
One of the easiest ways to keep your outdoor drapery from blowing is with common household supplies; A clothesline or sting, and clothespins (optional). To secure an outdoor curtain, run a clothesline or string along the bottom hem of your curtain. You can secure it to the curtain with either a few stitches (easily done with a needle and thread) or clothespins. Then, use the extra string to secure the corners of the curtain to porch railings or banisters. If your curtain is on the ground and not the floor, the stings can be secured to the ground with yard stakes.
