Not everyone is a fan of curtain pull backs and that’s absolutely respectable. I myself am a fan of straight hanging panels. But if you’re drawn to this look or want to give it a try here are 7 DIY projects to inspire you.

(Above) Let’s kick things off with these wood bead tie backs. They fit in with the popular Scandi design trend and will cost you less than $15 for the set. If you want to add a little more color, you can always paint or dye the beads before stringing. Check out the tutorial on Wild & Grizzly.

Give your windows the glam treatment with gold-rimmed agate pull backs. These could bring interest to simple, understated white curtains for summer, or add more drama to luxurious velvet for colder months. See how to make your own pair on A Kailo Chic Life.

For boho chic, fringe is an obvious must. Add in a little dip-dyeing, some beads, and leather accents and your windows will pair perfectly with your favorite weavings and rattan furniture. House & Home has the full tutorial.

If you prefer something a little more stately, go for this hack from Honey and Fitz. Dina turned these Anthropologie rabbit hooks into stunning curtain pull backs by mounting them to a wood block.

Perhaps one of the easiest projects to take on, Annie Selke has a simple project to dress up your window treatment using a brass snap hook (hers are vintage), an O ring, and rope.

If you’re a pom pom person, you may have not thought to add poms to your window treatments…until now, that is. The Weaving Loom offers a great project that can be color coordinated and customized to fit you space and windows.

Lastly, if you fancy all things vintage and upcycled, I would encourage you to keep your eyes peeled on your next junkin’ excursion. Mounted antique spools make for great curtain pull backs as seen over on Sewing Rabbit.
