Flower Cluster Curtain Tieback

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!

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!

    Ooh!! How gorgeous and girly… and clever and creative! There are endless combinations of flowers and ribbons in various styles and colors, so it would be both easy and inexpensive to make a new tieback to suit a change in decor. I love the buttons on the flowers, and the buttons and sparkly bow on the wooden letters. What a sweet room… lucky girl! Thanks for sharing these wonderful ideas, Cherie–you are amazing! Happy New Year to you and your family! xoxo

    How cute! I really like the teal and yellow flowers. Those are so pretty. I feel like these would be perfect in spring when it starts to warm up and flowers are blooming. I can’t wait to try it. I would love if you linked this up on my blog for Crafty Chaos Tuesdays! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I made some curtains for my daughters room a few months ago and have been needing to make something like a curtain tieback and your idea with the flowers is just what I need! It will add some color and girlyness to the dark curtains. I found your link at the Off the Hook Monday Link party. Thanks so much for the idea! I am always looking for inexpensive ideas that don’t look inexpensive at, maybe check it out sometime! Thanks again!

    I really wish I found this before my wedding. We has some lovely drapery around the venue, but I think these cute tie backs would have really made it! I’m looking to get some new curtains for my home soon though, so I could play around with this once I get them. This would look nice in the bedroom.

      Hi Rose! Thank you for sharing! I hope you get a chance to make these fun tiebacks for your new curtains. They would look amazing. I am sorry you didn’t find this tutorial until after your wedding, but I bet your drapery still looked amazing! Have a great day and thank you again! Michelle 🙂
