I am SUPER excited to share this little tutorial with you today!
I have shared this trick with a number of friends over the years, I hope you love it as much as they have.
First things first... Supplies!!!
~A wire hanger or long stick with hook
~Ribbon or thick string
(I always like to use ribbon that matches closely with the curtain I am working with)
AND PATIENCE! :)
OK, here's an example of a typical curtain.
When I first started my journey of decorating it would DRIVE me CRAZY that one side of my curtain would gather and the other side looked flat and lifeless! ughh!!
So I came up with this easy solution.
It might be somewhat simpleton, but it works for me.
Take your curtain panel and lay it on its backside
Find an old wire hanger or long stick with a hook, Anything that you can attach your ribbon or string to.
(In the Picture I have used a wired hanger that I straightened. I attached ribbon and left the hook at the end
so the ribbon wouldn't slide off)
Thread the ribbon through the open tab
(Tip...make sure you have plenty of extra ribbon on BOTH sides)
Tie the ends of the ribbon together
It's finally time to add the rod.
Keep the ribbon tied together when you are doing this.
(It might be a tight squeeze!)
Voila...hang your curtain rod and you're done!!
I love this little trick because you never have to fuss with your curtains ever again!
They stay PERFECTLY gathered all the time.
Just one more thing that makes life a little easier! :)
