I love long dramatic curtains, but man they can be EXPENSIVE. So, I found the quick and easy way to make my own.
I bought a flat twin sheet from Walmart and cut it in half.
My daughter wanted pink curtains, and since it’s her room, I figured why not?? So, I filled hot water in a large plastic container, added 1 cup of salt, and some RIT dye in ‘rose quarts’
I soaked each curtain in water And then added them to the dye mixture. I let them soak for roughly 10 minutes while stirring consistently.
once they’re done soaking you rinse them out until the rinsing water runs clear. After that, I washed them on delicate and put an old towel in with them to catch any excess dye during washing.
After washing and drying, I cut slits into the backside of the top of the sheet where it is doubled. This is where your curtain rod will go.
Be sure to only cut through one layer!
This is what it looks like when it’s put onto the rod. I left the edge of my curtains raw and just put the raw edge next to the wall and the finished edge towards the center. You can’t tell that the one edge is raw.
if I had a sewing machine available, I’d finish it off really quickly. As I don’t, I just left it. Eventually I’ll finish them.
here we have the finished project. The perfect light pink curtains and for only $10! Super super simple and so charming.
