 DIY curtain ties backs, interior curtains, curtain tie backs diy, design
Ever since I revealed my room makeover I've had some lovely emails and messages from you lovely lot *blushes and huge thanks!* and quite a few of you have been asking how I made my DIY curtain tie backs! Well as they only cost me the grand total of £10 for two, I thought I would share it on the blog with a little Make It tutorial. I really love the pale natural wood, especially against the grey, as I think it definitely adds a touch of Scandi style to the room. 

They are so super simple to make all you need is:

• 6ft of grey suede cord or string.
• 2 x 2ich diameter wood beads
• 8 x 1.5inch diameter wood beads
• 4 x 1 inch diameter wood beads
• 16 x 1/3 inch (or 1 cm roughly) diameter wood beads
• Scissors

1 small bead (SB) / 1inch / 1 SB / 1.5inch bead / 1SB / 1.5inch bead / 1SB / 2inch bead / 1SB / 1.5inch bead / 1SB / 1.5inch bead / 1SB / 1inch / 1SB.

Once you have created your repeated pattern then tie off the ends, making sure you leave a loop for your curtain tie backs to fit onto the hook on the wall. Cut of any excess cord or string and then admire your handy work!

It really is that easy! It took me about five minute to make both and you can pick up the wooden beads in most craft shops – or Hobbycraft in the UK – and it gives a lovely finish to your curtains, creating beautiful wooden curtain tie backs on a budget!

 Have you got any DIY home hacks planned for your home?



  1. I can't believe these only cost a tenner to make - looks like something you'd find in Heal's! I don't have curtains in my rented flat, but always love a good interiors tutorial!

  3. What a fab idea. They look lovely and a whole lot more expensive than than £10.

  4. They look really modern and cool, and I agree with Stacey, a lot more expensive than £10.

  8. Oh my gosh - what a simple yet effective idea!!!!! We have managed without tie backs for the past few months. I have never been able to find any in the shops that I particularly liked, but these look so easy to make that I might make it into a fun task to make some one afternoon with my daughter

  9. These are brilliant! They look fab without costing a bomb, great idea! - L

  10. What a fabulous idea, so scandi-cool! I can't wait to give this a go and I love how easy it looks - new curtain ties in no time. Thanks so much for sharing! The DIY home hack that I am trying to find at the moment is for wardrobe organisation - mine is such a nightmare, I will let you know if I find one.

  11. Do you have issues tying the suede? I had a bit. It just doesn't stay tied. I replaced it with a rope-like string and it works nicely.
