DIY is a popular trend, especially when it comes to home decor. It’s a great way to create a truly unique result that reflects your personal style and taste. Here are a few ideas for DIY curtains that you might use for your next project.
If you can’t find curtains with a specific pattern and color combination, why not make them! First, find plain curtains in a light/neutral color. Then, visit the local craft or fabric store to select your stencil. You might even be able to make a stencil using one of their kits. Grab some fabric paint in your desired color and get to work! The possibilities are endless.
Reuse Old Household Items
Sometimes the best way to create something new is to use something old. Old bedsheets, table cloths, or even towels can be converted into DIY curtains. You may have some laying around your house or may come across beautiful patterns at yard sales. Convert these into curtains by sewing rod pockets or tabs, adding hardware, or attaching rivets.
Another great DIY curtain idea is to create your own pattern using ribbons. Find a plain curtain in your desired color. Then, attach ribbons flat onto the curtain using fabric glue. You can use straight vertical or horizontal lines, a greek-inspired border, etc. Create different looks with your selection of ribbon size, color, material, and patterns. Don’t be scared to use more than one color on the same curtains. Actually, you need not limit yourself to just ribbons. There are many other materials that can be found at the craft store and attached to curtain panels.
Lace Accent Curtains
Lace is another great material that can be attached to curtains. Find a pretty pattern that you can cutoff and attach to curtain panels. You can sew or glue on the lace. This gives your curtains not only a unique look but also some interesting texture.
