I went to Joann's and grabbed a couple of packages of curtain grommets in bronze. They cost $10.99 each, I used a coupon and only paid $10.99 for two packages.
The instructions on the package are easy to follow and it comes with a handy tool to draw a template for where to cut the circles for the grommets. The only hard part was determining the placement of the grommets and the distance between each. A lot of math and rulers were used for this part!
To add a band of fabric to your drapery panels, begin by gathering your supplies. You will need scissors, a fabric pen, measuring tape, ruler, hem tape, iron and sewing machine. I used my sewing machine to secure the fabric but by all means you can use hem tape for a no-sew project.
Place your band of fabric on your curtain where you would like it to be placed, measure from the bottom edge to ensure your band will be straight. I placed the bottom edge of mine on the hem line of the curtain.
If you want to trim your length of fabric first, measure the curtain and add 4 inches for the hem. My curtain is 40 1/4 inches wide, so I would need to trim the fabric to 44 1/4 inches.
