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
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!!
