DIY Shower Curtain Ties

Shower curtain ties: Our hall bathroom was in need of an update. So I started planning the update and checking out the bathrooms I loved on my Bathroom Pinterest Board. I really liked the bathrooms that were bright and fresh, now on to the fun part. The largest design element in a small bathroom is the shower curtain, and I wanted something fun.

Trying to stay on budget for a quick bathroom update was important, so I searched Amazon for ready-made shower curtains. I love that I found the perfect one see it HERE and it comes in extra long too.

Shower Curtain Dilemma, needs ties to attach to custom hardware

Shower Curtain Dilemma

Now for the next step: altering the shower curtain to use with our custom hardware. Notice the rings are not going to allow me to use the grommets to attach the curtain.

I have to work with custom hardware since it is screwed through the tile so the rings are my challenge. How to attach the new curtain to the existing hardware?

These plastic rings come with the curtain if you want to use them, but I am using my custom hardware.

I purchased two packages of 1/4″ double fold bias tape to use for the ties. I am going for simple, quick and budget friendly.

Cut the bias tape to the length you want for the ties (I cut them 15″) and fold in both ends like in photo above.

Have you heard the saying measure twice and cut once? Well, this is one of those times it pays to make sure the tie is the right length before cutting, ironing and sewing all of them. If you are happy with the length sew the ties.

Did you notice the red headed pin? It marks the place I need to fold over to shorten the curtain. Since I am not using grommets to install I ordered the shower curtain in the 78″ length so I could remove the grommets.

After making the top hem use the grommet header you cut off as a pattern to mark where to place your ties.

The ties look way better than the grommets! Sort of a happy accident :)

As for me-this is a wonderful idea for updating your room. I'm just about to do some repairs, so I'm currently looking for good solutions to create comfort, as well as in the process of studying bath planet reviews. I want everything to be in the best possible shape
