Every year during spring/summer time I make a few changes to the house. You know just to spruce it up a bit maybe add some pillows, indoor plants mainly the accessories and little things but nothing major. As renters we always have a lot of restriction as to what we can do. Last year I was totally for the removable wallpaper ( there is a fun post on wallpapers right here ). This year I though about changing the window treatments. Today’s diy pom-pom curtain project is all about adding a different soft textured fabric to your homes with pops of summer colors.
I’m working with a friend of mine to decorate her six-year-old daughter’s room. That’s where I worked on this diy project and fell so much in love with it that I decided to do the same thing in my house too..! even grown-ups can like pom-poms right?. So the pics I’m sharing are from her room. (lots of diys coming up from that project soon). You may have seen the trend with pom-pom throws, place mats, wall decor and so many other projects online. Its a super easy and affordable way of adding color and interest. It also creates a strong visual impact since your eye is drawn straight to the bright colors. So follow along for the easy tutorial.
What You Need:
Pom-Pom lace trims (from Joann) , curtain (from JC Penney) and a curtain rod (from At Home), fabric glue or sewing machine. You could buy these products from any local stores of your choice. The ones mentioned are from where I bought mine. Also if you do not have a sewing machine you could use the small portable hand stitch one too or just use glue.
Start gluing the trim on the edges of the curtain. If you are using a single trim glue is fine. If using more than one, I would suggest that sewing is a better and long-lasting option. You will also be able to wash it without any damage. Using glue also works in case you are short on time, but some fabrics don’t hold it well. So I would suggest test it on a corner before you decide which route to take. I did not have a sewing machine so I used glue and then hand stitched over that just to make sure it wouldn’t come off. Just took a little more time but was pretty easy.

Have a great week!
