Ways To Create Grommet Drapes
Grommet drapes are attractive and simple options for window treatments. If you want to create grommet drapes by yourself, then here are some ways that you can do. First take the measurement of the drape rod and the ring so that they complement each other. Buy the kit accordingly, or else you can purchase the materials separately and then assemble them. Decide how many rings you will require for fixing on the drape. The density of the pleats will depend on the spacing of the rings. If you fix the rings at least 1 inch apart from each other, then, the drape fabric will be overlapped in a compact manner. This makes the drape look much more voluminous. Before attaching the rings, you have to pierce holes of the same size to that of the ring on the panel of the drapes. Fold the panel and cut it in a circular fashion. Now sew the sides by hemming it. This forms the attachment zone of the grommet rings.
If you have purchased a kit, you will get the punching tool for fixing the rings along with it. Read the instructions mentioned on the label and then start the process. The rings are double layered and you can start fixing according to the suggested technique. Punch it tightly so that they do not fall off, and fix it on the wrong side of the drapes. Once the holes are ready, you can easily pass the rods through it. Pleat it well so that the drapes look compact and full.
