How to Install Curtain Grommets

Looking for an easy way to spruce up your window treatments? Curtains with grommets look stylish and are simple to make and hang. The benefits of grommet curtains are that they hang without clips—just slide the grommets right onto a curtain rod—and they add a modern style to a room, fitting well with an eclectic or contemporary décor.

For our project we used plastic curtain grommets that snap into place. These grommets are suitable for sheer to drapery weight fabrics and can be installed without an installation tool. Traditional metal grommets also work well in curtains, but do require the use of some installation tools. In this video, Eric demonstrates how to install the curtain grommets to make a shower curtain. The steps are the same for window curtains or drapes for your home or boat.

How to Install Curtain Grommets in Just 4 Steps

  1. Trace the shape of the grommet. Use a template if provided.
  2. Cut out the traced circle.
  3. Insert the raised eyelet side of the grommet through the hole on the right side of the fabric.
  4. Snap or install the pronged side of the grommet onto the raised eyelet side.
