{10 minute curtains}

Laundry room curtains have been on my list for awhile, and even though I had a piece of fabric already sitting up in my closet, I just kept putting it off. After posting about Linda’s drop cloth curtains, I had an idea…and using my trusty glue gun, I knew it would be fast and easy.

It proved to be just that. I made these curtains in about 10 minutes (which is good, because that’s literally all the time I had!), and I think they turned out cuter than what I had previously planned!

ITEMS YOU NEED:

  • canvas dropcloth (I used a remnant of one I already had)
  • hot glue gun
  • fabric, or ribbon
This is seriously the easiest thing you will ever do. Canvas is perfect for hot glue–it’s thick enough to not see through it, but light enough for the glue to work well.

I laid out the dropcloth, and cut it to fit my window, plus about 16 inches. Using my hot glue gun, I “hemmed” the sides, then made a curtain pocket at the top. That’s it! Since I was going to tie up the curtains, I decided not to hem the bottom edge, so it wouldn’t be too bulky. I put it on the rod, then used black & cream gingham fabric pieces to tie them up. The dropcloth is stiffer than regular fabric, so it’s very easy to fold and the material into shape once it’s on the rod. The total cost for these curtains? $6–$5 for the dropcloth, and $1 for the fabric. LOVE it!!

  2. great I was thinking about doing this for my kids rooms, do u think I could dye the fabric?

  3. Natasha–

    I'm not sure. I've only dyed lighter, cotton fabrics, never a heavy dropcloth. You could always try a small swatch, and test it out first. It's worth a shot! Let me know how it works!
