The pom-poms are green, not black. Turns out it's hard to get a good photo when you're shooting right at an open window.
Luckily, my mom found an extra closet rod in her basement that she had gotten on clearance at Lowe's for $8. (My parents' basement is a wonderful place. Remember we found this there, too?)
For curtain rings I decided regular old plastic shower curtain rings would do. (12 for $1.25!) With a little paint, you can't even tell they're plastic. I sewed little loops of ribbon on the back of the panels so I would have something to snap the rings onto. Easy, quick & cheap!
Thank goodness we have a three day weekend coming up!
