When planning a sukkah, one of the first decorative decisions you’ll have to make is how to form the walls. Although many folks use plastic tarp or plywood, here are some more attractive and unique options you may not have thought about.
One of the easiest ways to define your sukkah space is with curtains. Curtains come in all styles and prices. You can hang the curtains loosely like drapes if you want a more luxurious look or you can make them taut to the structure for a tent-like appearance.

Bamboo shades are really substantial and can keep out a lot of wind if tied down. When really well fitted they can give the structure both beauty and protection. The downside is that bamboo shades can be quite expensive but you will use them year after year. Also, they can make the sukkah quite dark on the inside.

FABRIC / RIBBON STRIPS
I saw this idea from a wedding and it seemed really neat for a sukkah. To save on fabric costs, you can pick up sheets or curtains to shred from a charity shop.

Thought these went away with the 70s? Beaded curtains can be plain or patterned, expensive or cheap. The best looking are made from natural materials. You can find them on Amazon or if you live near a Chinatown, some of the souvenir shops.

For me, I’m opting for the curtains. They are the easiest for me to acquire quickly and install.
