Create Shower Curtain Ring Holes

Equip sewing machine with button hole foot and set to automatic button hole settings. Make button hole approximately 1/2-inch long at each pin mark (Image 1). Use seam ripper to create opening inside button hole for curtain rings (Image 2). Trim all threads. Repeat steps 2–7 on second curtain panel.

Assemble Top and Sides of Cornice

Assemble pine boards cut for sides and top in a U shape and use pocket-hole jig to drill angled holes through top into side pieces of cornice (Image 1). Secure together with 1 1/4-inch wood screws through pocket holes. Tip: Adjust measurement of side pieces to achieve desired look and rod height.

Attach Rod Holder

Determine proper placement of rod holder based on desired rod height. Mark holes with pencil (Image 1), pre-drill holes and attach rod holders to interior of side pieces with screws (Image 2).
