Materials & tools
Use a pair of scissors to trim messy wires around the hole and try to make it neat. After that, wipe the surrounding dust with a clean cloth.
Choose a screen repair tape whose size is suitable for the broken hole. There are 3 popular sizes: 10 cm × 10 cm (large size), 7 cm × 7 cm (small size) and 5 cm × 300 cm (strip-shaped).
Tear the glue on the rear. Then, stick it over the broken hole from the inside. If you choose the strip-shaped one, just cut a piece out and pasted on. The size of the piece you cut according to the size of the hole and your need.
Material & tools
Cut a piece of screen mesh out from an intact window screen to cover the entire tear. Leave a one-inch (about 2.5 cm) margin on each side.
If you have an old screen, you could use it directly. However, if you care about appearance of the screen, you'd better buy a new one in the same material and color.
Notice: In order to enhance the visual, we choose a piece of intact window screen in black to repair the white one.
Thread a curved upholstery needle with strong string of the same color as the screen. You can use a straight needle if you can reach both sides of the screen, but it will be more difficult and time consuming.
As to the selection of string, you can try fishing thread, which is invisible and very strong.
Cover the tear with the piece of screen mesh which you have already cut. If you didn't take the window screen down, you can hold this repair piece in place temporarily with tape.
Sew around the edge of the screen mesh piece. Take small stitches, making sure to reach all grids. What we want to get is to bring the two pieces together as closely as possible.
Tie the thread off with a strong knot, at least double tied. Ensure that there are no gaps where insects can get in. Then, it is finished.
