I have shared this tip years ago. I think it was one of my first posts when I started Home by Heidi back winter of 2011.
It's a great tip so I thought I would bring it to the forefront Its such a quick and easy curtain fix. I have shared this trick with a number of friends and family over the years!
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)
It DRIVES me CRAZY when one side of my curtain is gathered and the other side looked flat and lifeless! ughh!! So I came up with this easy curtain solution.
It might be somewhat simpleton, but it works for me.
BEFORE and AFTER
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.
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!)
