  • glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • extension cord
  • tassel or trim tape
  • notepad
  • pencil

Determine Look

To ensure the proper duvet update, decide on overall intended look. Tape trim is best for transitional and modern aesthetics. Tassel tape is ideal for more formal, traditional styles.

Measure Duvet

Using tailor tape, determine length and width of duvet. Jot dimensions down on notepad using pencil. Referring to measurements on notepad, ask fabric store employee for help choosing proper yardage.

Prep Duvet

Lay duvet out on a long, flat surface. Protect both the surface and duvet by placing towels down. Once towels are in place, lay duvet down, then remove wrinkles with iron.

Cut and Place Trim

Roll tassel or trim tape out along edge of duvet. Mark tassel or trim tape with pencil at end corner of duvet. Wrap marked area of tassel or trim tape with gift-wrapping tape. Using fabric scissors, miter trim by cutting at a 45-degree angle.

Attach Trim

Once all pieces of tassel or trim are cut, add a bead of glue to bottom of trim (Image 1). Press tassel or trim tape firmly into place (Image 2).
