How do you hang a curtain backdrop?
Method #1: Hang your backdrop over a curtain rod or pipe.
The simplest version of this method is to install curtain/drapery rods, and then hang your backdrop from the rods as if they were curtains. If your backdrop has grommets, you can hang the backdrop from the rod using hooks, as if it were a shower curtain.
Can you use fabric as a backdrop?

How much does a backdrop cost?
