I just cut the pieces, ironed them and then literally glued the seam together and then glued it on to the shear.
Now maybe given the opportunity again I would probably just sew it and stop being lazy about it. But the glue gun worked great and since it's high temp it'll wash well on gentle. So I'm not worried and I think for what it is it looks great.
What do you think?
The larger window needed something as well. It was also a serious thrift store find meets quick DIY. A $1 bedsheet turned into window treatment!
This twin bedsheet which really isn't all that well made already had the hem at the top that was open at the ends perfect for a curtain rod.
I've also been wanting something with a scalloped edge or pom pom trim for that window.
So I just went for both and am glad I did.
I folded over the bedsheet long ways and cut my length. Then with it still folded over a couple times long ways, I cut one scallop (sort of the same concept when you fold a piece of paper to cut out a heart) and opened it up. Wah Laaa!
Because I didn't really want to finish the end of that edge (I was really uber lazy this particular day)I thought about the pom pom trim. Again enter glue gun. I added a cute bunting I made and now it feels so fun, bright and cheerful just the way a playroom should.
(pretend you don't see the snow piling up on my deck furniture outside. It's been a busy winter)
Two window treatments for a total under $5. Awesome! DIYing thrift store finds might be my favorite thing to do.
