DIY Outdoor Drop Cloth Curtains
Create your own outdoor oasis this summer with DIY drop cloth curtains! They are super easy to make, inexpensive and beautiful!
Drop cloth can be found in the paint section of your local hardware store. Wash and dry the canvas before sewing.
After measuring the length needed, start by sewing the rod pocket.
Next, use all the extra length to make your hem. Don't cut any excess off. The extra fabric will help weigh the panels down so they hang better.
Before sewing the hem, make a pocket for weights (washers) approximately every 12" across the width of the panel.
Done! Waterproof your curtains before hanging. A camping type waterproofing made for canvas is perfect. You can see what brand I used on my blog.
Your new drop cloth curtains will be perfect for added privacy from prying neighbor eyes.
Sit back and enjoy your summer on the patio! Check out the entire tutorial and details on my blog, Sprinkled Nest.
