We’ll tell ya – installing grommets in curtains is one of those things that seems WAY harder than it actually is. I (JZ) have long been making curtains for her various apartments and houses over the years, but she always stayed away from grommets because they seemed too complicated. Not loving rod pockets though (they just don’t slide very well), I always resorted to ridiculous hanging inventions that never quite worked correctly.

However, with a little bit of determination and D’s great math skills, we discovered that making grommet curtains is super easy. Whether you’re making your own curtains–or you’re wanting to convert some rod pocket curtains into grommet curtains, we have the tutorial for you!
