I am so excited about today’s fun and innovative project! There are so, SO, so many fun things you can do with the amazing flowers you can find at The Ribbon Retreat and Cherie is showing us a fabulous new way of showing off some flower power. Flowers look incredible as hair accessories, but they also looking amazing as eye catching decorations for your home too and so much more! Enjoy!
The Ribbon Retreat has such beautiful flowers. They make such cute hair accessories, but why only use them for that purpose? Today I’m going to show you how to make a simple, decorative Curtain Tieback.
I wanted the curtain to be gathered in the center, all the time, so I gathered the curtain and secured it with a hair tie.
If you wanted your curtains to be brought to the side and have the possibility to let them down, you could attach the ribbon to rings or D Rings (put each ribbon end through a ring then fold the ribbon over and sew or glue it in place) and put the rings on a screw hook or command hook. I hope that makes sense without a visual.
I used buttons from my Antique Mix on two of the flowers for some vintage flair.
I also did a button cluster on one of the wooden letters of my daughter’s name. These vintage buttons are so cute!
A gold sparkly bow adds just the right touch to her name!
I hot glued 4 flowers to some 3″ Sarsaparilla Grosgrain Ribbon.
Because I wanted this tieback on permanently, I safety pinned it to the curtain. If you want to be able to take it on and off with ease you could sew or glue some Velcro to each end of the ribbon.
Here is a picture of the whole room. It was hard to get a picture of this during the day so I took it at night. Not the best picture, but you can see how the tieback makes the room!
This tieback and simple embellishments add so much character to my daughter’s room! I love the impact for such a cheap and easy project! The Ribbon Retreat has so many fun things to make your child’s room one of a kind!
