Easy Ways To Decorate Curtains
Windows are essential to one’s house. Where there are windows, blinds, drapes, or curtains are also present.
Having curtains benefits a household in so many ways.
Of course, they are there primarily to keep the privacy inside your house.
However, it is of no doubt that curtains dramatically affect the ambiance and mood of our home.
Dear friend, it’s time for you to make your curtains look gorgeous.
So, how to decorate curtains?
This section will learn, while not missing the fun, how to decorate our dull curtains.
Idea #1. Curtain Trims
The market offers a wide range of trims that may match any of your curtains.
That is very suggestive since you’ll give a little hand to finish off the decoration.
There’s no need for you to get a “degree in embroiderer” – we must say – to achieve a stunning look for your curtains.
If you know the basics of sewing, you can get through this job in less than a day.
Yet, it would be best if you sewed the trim of your choice at the edges of the curtain.
If you think it’s pretty nice seen on the hem, you may also sew it there.
But if you desire your curtains not to fly away, you may sew curtain weights along the hemline.
One of the most common trim is the fringe trim and is universal. Just be sure to choose trim with a color that compliments your curtain.
Idea #2. Artistic curtain tiebacks
The simple art of tying can make your curtains look more fashionable.
We usually close the curtains by night and open them by day. But, did you know that there are different ties that you can do with your curtains?
Get away with the ties you did that left the curtains with wrinkles.
Changing the ties of our curtains every season is such a wise way to decorate our home.
For example, during the spring season, you may use tiebacks with flower or leaf decorations.
In summer, you may purchase tiebacks with sun or shell decorations – an indication of sea time!
Of course, you would decorate an artistic choice of tieback with flowers or leaves whose colors are dying during the fall.
For the winter, you may choose snowy tiebacks or branchy ones. Another idea is to select a tieback with a connection to Christmas.
Magnetic curtain holders
In this modern age, even curtain tiebacks innovate! Guess what. Magnetic curtain holders are such a trend in the market nowadays.
It has become one of the people’s favorites because it is convenient to use.
Used pieces of jewelry
Who would have thought that the pieces of jewelry that have been long forgotten in your jewelry box can be the key to transform your home?
You may combine pieces of jewelry that look complimentary and united with your curtain. It will give your home a look like ancient times.
However, it would help if you took note to use stronger jewelry for heavy curtains.
This one is to ensure that the tiebacks can secure the curtains in place.
Idea #3. Paint it
You may be tempted to skip this portion because you might think this is solely for the “artists.” Darling, you’re mistaken.
We’re not going to paint a mural in the curtain.
No! We will turn our plain curtains into striped ones.
If you can paint a straight line, then you can do this! Don’t be discouraged.
Plain curtains are much affordable if you compare them to the “luxurious” ones.
But it is pretty practical to buy such and innovate it yourself for a low price, right?
So take out your plain curtain, masking tape, scissors, brush, and complimentary paint, and let’s start the “art.”
First, you have to spread out the curtain you wanted to paint on a flat surface.
To ensure that the floor is not going to be affected by any paint, cover it with plastic.
Measure the length of the curtain, then divide this length by the number of stripes you want.
Then mark the divisions using a pencil – be sure to keep them straight.
After which, determine the alternating not-to-paint and to-paint portions of the curtain.
Then, put tape on the stripe that you should not paint. Put it below the top marking and above the lower marking.
That is to make sure that this portion is clean and no paint would leak to it. So stick the tape harder!
Using a paintbrush, you may also use a foam roller if you do have one – apply the paint to and fro on the portion that is to be painted.
If the paint isn’t that saturated enough, you can let it dry and do another paint layer.
Then, remove the tapes, and you’re done!
