I finally got around to doing something about my curtains. I found these at the thrift store years ago and gave them a makeover, but was ready for a change. We moved the furniture around in my room and we now have a fireplace under the window. The fireplace will be getting a makeover soon also, so any ideas are welcome! I wanted curtains that would close over the fireplace and that’s when these DIY Romantic Ruffle Curtains were created!
DIY Romantic Ruffle Curtains
This is what the curtains looked like before I gave them this sweet makeover. They were to long to close over the fireplace, which is what I wanted.
I started by gathering some fabric and stitching it together with a needle and thread. Tie in a double knot and leave enough thread to tie a knot.
I kept gathering and stitching the curtains until they were the length I wanted.
The DIY ruffle garland I made for my cousin’s bridal shower, was the perfect addition to the curtains. I simply tied the ends of the garland to the threads on the curtains.
What do you think? These DIY Romantic Ruffle Curtains aren’t for everyone, but I love them. The soft hanging ruffles remind me of a Holly Hobbie bedspread I had in the 80’s. What I wouldn’t do to have that bedspread back…
I’ve been open with you all about my struggles with my mental health. I’ve been taking small steps to get my life back and thankfully have some amazing friends who have stepped up to help me. Danielle has been coming over on the weekends to help me organize and declutter, so it’s definitely helped in motivating me to get other projects done.
