To bring you breaking news. Ok, not really. Really, I just don't have that last tutorial quite finished yet. And this here is something easy shmeezy I just did that I thought I would share - just in case someone out there want someone like me to tell them the obvious. Because this project here? It's not really a project. It's a "that-was-way-too-easy-to-call-a-project-so-I-Can't-Really-Call-This-a-Tutorial-Can-I?" kind of tutorial. Maybe, somewhere, this is someone like me who sat around for too long not doing this.
Ready? Here we go.
Lay out your grommets along the top of your curtain - measuring the spacing to ensure accuracy. I had 8 grommets per panel and they were a little over 4 inches apart. See that plastic piece on the top of the curtain there? That's the template they provide for you to trace some circles. You don't even need to make your own template!
So, use that to trace circles where you need them.
Now, cut out all of your circles. It's a bit unnerving to see holes all over the top of your curtains...
Lay the first panel you already cut on top of the uncut panel. Trace the circles.
Cut them out.
There are two parts to the grommet. A ridged side and a prong side.
Stick the ridge side in the hole in what is the FRONT of your curtain. You will need to turn the curtain over and center the hole over the ridges.
Now, place the prong-y side over this,
And push - fairly hard - until you hear a click.
It's really that simple.
Do this to all of the circles
and in about half an hour you'll have lovely grommeted curtains!
Hang them on the rod and admire!
Now you can easily slide those curtains all over. To the middle...
to the sides...
And the best part is that they don't drag anymore!
Try pulling THOSE off, kiddos! Bwah ha ha ha!
