I figured I could sew some gathers but first, I set out to find some buttons to attach at the gathered points. When I saw the price of the buttons that I liked, I decided to look for other options. That’s when I found these clip/pin flowers made from ribbon.
They were $1 each and I knew this would be a fast, elegant and cheap alternative to sewing the gathers and attaching buttons. All I needed was to pick up a roll of pretty matching ribbon for tie backs and a couple of sheers that I knew I had at home.
|Step 1: Gather curtain and clip on flower|
|Step 2: Tie bows from ribbon to make tie backs.|
|Step 3: Add shears and tie back. Done!|
The ribbon cost $3 and the flowers were $2. So it took $5 and about 10 minutes of my time to get to my final result. What do you think?
