Determine how much space you want between the grommets, and measure and mark accordingly using the fabric pencil. Begin and end grommet placement 3/4 inch from each edge.
Cut a slit at each place you marked on the curtain for a grommet to allow the fabric to give when inserting the grommets. Make sure you don't cut the slit larger than the circumference of the grommet you are installing.
Insert the first grommet into the grommet pliers according to the manufacturer's instructions. Line up the pliers over the first slit, and squeeze firmly until the grommet is transferred to the fabric. Repeat with remaining grommets until all are installed.
