In a previous blog I showed where my son assisted me by taking down borders over the holiday.
The dark borders along with dark curtains made the room dreary...So I decided it was time to change my window treatment. I didn't want to spend a lot of money which meant I would have to whip up something myself. Thankfully Home Fabric was having a terrific "Buy 2 yards get 1 yard free". I found some lovely fabric for $5 a yard so a purchase of 6yds only cost me $20 then I bought 6 yds of ribbon for $5. So, with my $25 purchase I was ready to get started.
My first thought was to whip out my sewing machine but then I remembered how well the No Sew glue worked on my pillows, so I decided to give it a go... Because it's so hot in the summer I knew I was going to keep the curtains short which allows for a better flow of air. After taking measurements glued the sides and hem.
I then cut the ribbon in 7" strips and folded it over and glued at top. Rather than using clips I will be using the ribbon to hang curtains.
That was it! Once everything was dry it was time to hang them.
I decided to keep my old sheers...
I had already had some tassels that I had taken off of another window treatment, so I decided to use them here.
I have about 1 yard of fabric left, so I'll be whipping up some decorative No Sew Pillows soon! Not bad for a $25 purchase...
Have Fun and don't forget to LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
