DIY // How to Make Back-Tab Bedroom Curtains

A few things to keep in mind prior to selecting your fabric.

  1. These curtains are heavy once done, so make sure to install your rods with supporting threaded anchors. The oversized threads on these anchors are designed to screw directly into drywall. They’re available in nylon or brass. The brass version with a hook holds more weight than the center screw type. While threaded anchors hold well and are easy to install and remove, they leave a nice-sized hole behind should you decide to redecorate in the future.
  2. Buy your fabric in one piece. If you want to make two panels, add everything together (you can cut it yourself once you start making your curtains). This way, you will save a few extra bucks.
  3. Get an extra yard of fabric for your throw pillows. It will look great to have the same pattern on your bed as well.
  4. Making bedroom curtains requires adding blackout lining to keep the light outside.
