Take Ikea ready made white curtains to the next level.
I have always loved the look of clean crisp white curtains. Nothing wrong with simple white curtains, however I wanted to add a serious fun factor. To me curtains are the mascara in a room.
Here are some samples of simple embellishments I added.
White, black and blue pom poms and a black and white ribbon.
Very simple curtain diy. I choose to sew the pom poms on. You can use a glue gun or fabric adhesive.
Here are some examples I found that inspired me.
I sewed the pom poms on the inside of the curtain panel. You could sew it either way…inside or outside.
If curtains are the mascara in a room then the trim is the eye liner. It makes the curtain pop!
I Love the crispness of the black and white ribbon. Choose your favorite ribbon and get creative!
Any size of pom pom will do. These are large and fluffy. Here again I sewed the trim on the inside of the curtain so you only see the pom pom.
Let’s discuss some more about curtains.
They help with sound and soften a room. Hang them high and hang them proud. Hang your curtains as high to the ceiling as you can. The higher they are hung the taller the room looks. Curtains are hung in relation to the ceiling not the window. Usually you want the curtain to just kiss the floor. Don’t forget to double up the panels on each side. You want the fullness and it looks richer.
Here is one of my favorite illustrations to demonstrate curtain hanging…a great lesson.
It’s a Room Changer!
