Fabric covered, ball finials
Curtain Rods.Com Curtains
Finials can be partially or totally covered to match or accent other fabrics in the room. Handsome with fabric covered rods, they may be used with painted ones as well.

Cut three fabric circles. 9" for 1 3/8" pole, 12" for 2" pole. Wrap one over ball of finial; secure with a rubber band. Put right sides of remaining two together. Sew along edge leaving a gap of about 2". Turn right side out, press and finish hem.

Fold to find center. Cut small hole and fit over screw end of finial. Pull up toward ball, gather and secure with rubber band. Trim.

If desired, ball end of finial may be painted instead of fabric covered.
