I made this quick and easy window dressing for the larger window in my kitchen. My house is most definitely not formal at all. Some things are even put up temporarily, just to see what I think about them.
I like bright colors and whimsy. I’m not at all above decorating using kids toys. Who doesn’t like toys?! Why do we have to hide our inner children? I can play too. Or at least look at fun things that make me smile.
So here is a curtain that I made and threw up in a jiffy. My kind of timeframe. I used iron- on hemming tape, probably the wrong way but it worked for the purpose, a babies teething ring and super glue. Yes I have moved on from staples and duct tape to super glue. Works great when you don’t get it on your fingers or in your eye!
I had this really long piece of material that my daughter left here many years ago and I just rediscovered it in a drawer.
I super glued the curtain to the window frame (a tiny bit) because I couldn’t find a little tiny nail. You can do things like that when you have an old crappy house. Then I super glued the teething ring to the bottom of the window sill and to the curtain behind it to keep it in place. If I decide in a few months that I want to replace it I will just take it down and paint over the chipped paint. See I told you, quick and easy window dressing. And fun! Makes me smile anyway.
I call it my Happy Curtain. Go ahead let your imagination go. Look for something you can use in an unusual, creative and unexpected way, something that will make you smile.
