Bows Are Not Just For Hair


Were moving this post from our old blog to here, YAY!!

This is the most adorable way to jazz up boring drapery in the kids room or any room.

This is perfect for tab top drapery or grommet drapery as the fabric strips can be tied easily around each tab or through two grommets to tie a bow.

The first photo shows how a strip of fabric can simply be tied around each tab into a bow. If your drapery panels are solid, use a bright, girly print and if the drapery has a print, find a lovely coordinating color or print and done! Super fun and something the little princess can help with as well. The best part, they can be switched out whenever another print or color is found or if the decor changes.

Streamers can also be tied the same way. Long strands of beads, rhinestones, and lace; the possibilities are endless.

Do the same for grommet drapery (the drapery with the large metal holes that slide onto the rod).

The second photo shows an example of what can be done to regular panels that are not tab top or grommet style. Take the new strip of fabric, fold in half and stitch to the back of the top of the panel. Use these strips to hang the drapery to the rod but tie the strips into a bow!


These lovely DIY tips will help save you a lot of money but yet give a nice, fresh look to those solid or dated drapery panels :).
