This is a simple project I did when I moved into our home. First I picked out buttons and ribbon that matched the decor in my living room. Also, I purchased two drawer knobs that matched. Then I cut the ribbon to the length I would want to tie back my curtains. I simply spaced the buttons apart and hot glued them to the ribbon, along with hot gluing the ends of the ribbon together. Then I attached the drawer knobs to the wall, ran the ribbon up through the bottom of the curtain and attached the ribbon to the knob.
