I lay the roller blind out flat so I could begin to work on it. I started to use the natural colours of the fabric to be the rocks and landscape and the batik has a lovely natural marble effect that helps with the texture.
How to Decorate a Window Blind Easily With Fabric Scraps!
I had a tired dull looking window roller blind in my guest room and thought it would be good to experiment with some batik fabrics I had left over from another project on it!
I came up with a wild African theme as it is close to my heart. Modpodge and sponge applicators are all that’s needed with some fabric pieces.
I cut around the shapes I feel will be useable and some natural animal shapes that were in the fabric but you could draw from inspirational images you find.
I have in mind some shapes and see on the fabric what they may be turned into.
I lay the shapes out onto the blind and try and work out the best place to stick them for a nice balanced interesting scene.
I decide where the pieces need to go and begin sticking them down with mod podge hard coat sealant and I only use it on the fabric not over the top on this project.
I continue with the sticking down until I am happy with placement of animals and rocks.
I am so delighted with my final transformed African inspired scene blind!
