Customize Store-Bought Curtains With Ribbon Trim
Use fun pom-pom trim and colorful ribbons to update an inexpensive pair of ready-made curtains into a custom decoration for your dorm room.
- pair of white ready-made curtains
- fabric glue
- pom-pom trim (6x the width of one curtain)
- three kinds of ribbon (each length should be 8x the width of one curtain)
Add Pom-Pom Trim
Lay one curtain on a flat surface. Put a line of fabric glue on the curtain 5 inches from the top edge (Image 2). Stick the pom-pom trim onto the line of fabric glue (Image 3).
Add Thin Ribbon Trim
About 4 inches from the pom-pom trim, add another line of fabric glue all the way across the curtain (Image 1). Stick a solid, thin ribbon onto the line of glue (Image 2).
Add Wide Ribbon Trim
Put another line of fabric glue underneath the previous ribbon (Image 1). Stick a wide, solid ribbon onto the line of glue (Image 2).
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).
The random pattern of the colorful ribbons and pompom trim create a fun and whimsical look for any dorm room.
