The awning is attached to house and extends from our house roof. It slants down from roof. What do I use to hang the curtains and what do I use, without making holes in the siding on the House?

    You could use extendable curtain poles which spring in to place, not sure how long your awning is. I have voiles hanging from mine, very pretty, cheap, changeable.

      Like your Idea, but our awning is way too long. wish they had longer ones, that would be easy way to hang curtains. I did use same idea to hang curtains in my laundry room to hide things stored behind the furnace. Thanks!

    Command hooks - they work outdoors in protected areas. Or use velcro tucked under the awning

    Velcro and rope and add command hooks! Super easy!

    Marianna, the other day, I saw a white Lattice at a hardware store, and then if you put this up, no one can really see inside., or you can put sheers up on the inside also. Perhaps a diff. color may brighten up your area. These are very little in price, and can do wonders. Enjoy, and you can always change colors if you choose. Have a lovely day, Judy.

    Marianna, I wanted to say, that the pic that I saw, showed 3 of these lattice beside one another, and that was a perfect view on the end of this person's porch. Just wanted to share that with you, ok? Enjoy!! Judy.

      Judy Seems like my reply keeps Disappearing . I was cleaning deck and also thought of lattice. Our decks sits high off the ground ,so would like to put lattice on bottom of deck also to hide stuff under the deck. My husband and I both have hit our heads on the beam under the deck. Thanks!

    All depend if you wish to open them or leave closed. If you want to open them, you can use old potato bags (those in thick natural fiber fabric) with water steel pipes. you can taint your future curtains on the colour you like, And you can also use steel curtain rings. You can olso use curtain rails.
    I you want them fixed (mainly at the top, so you'll open them by the side if you wish. Use velcro ribon. It's removable...
    You can also use shower curtain, but remember the lighter the curtains are, the easier will ther flight in wind be.

      I have alot of shower curtains and would like to use them ,some are fabric which I think would work well, but my husband isn't thrilled with me wanting to add any rods. Velcro might be the solution, to attach velcro to lattice, since our awning slants, attaching it to lattice Hoping It will go straight across and be even on bottom. Thanks!

    I like the idea of sheer curtains held up by command hooks. IKEA has a sheer curtain - 2 for $5.

    I think that a hardware store like Lowes, Home Depot would have "vinyl hangers." Which simply means there are no wholes into your vinyl siding. Sending you this link. You may have to order and shop around there are a multitude of different hooks and prices vary. https://www.walmart.com/ip/No-Hole-Hooks-Vinyl-Siding-Hangers-Low-Profile-4PK/537381040?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=7225&adid=22222222227082703016&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=196371608392&wl4=pla-314096723759&wl5=9012712&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=115064395&wl11=online&wl12=537381040&wl13=&veh=sem
