Continue Adding Lines of Glue + Ribbon

Add a line of fabric glue a few inches down from the previous ribbon (Image 1). Add the ribbons in a random pattern on each curtain. Stick on a fun, patterned ribbon onto the line of glue (Image 2). As you move down the curtain, push the top up on the table into a bunch (Image 3). Keep adding lines of glue and ribbons until you reach halfway down the curtain (Image 4).

You're Finished!

The random pattern of the colorful ribbons and pompom trim create a fun and whimsical look for any dorm room.
