DIY Roman Curtain


I'm so excited when I finished and hang my very own made new Roman Shades! It was pretty  and easy to sew, just make a long piece of fabric with hemmed edges. If your fabric is thin you can add the interfacing to give little bit structure.  In this project I use outdoor fabric I found from Joanns. And don't forget to bring you coupons it can save you a lot than buying it on its whole price.  


I bought my cheap min blinds from Target for less than $4.

Steps:
1. Mini blinds have a series of cords that hold the plastic strips in place and help lift the shade. The lift cord is thick and the ladder shaped cord holds the plastic strips. Cut the ladder cord out of the blind, but be very careful not to cut the lift cord!    Leave some few ladder cords, I decided mine to have 7 inches apart.




2. Lay down you sewn fabric to the floor and top it with the blinds.



3.  Put enough mod podge in each strips, or you can use hot glue but you have to work very fast as it easily cooled down and you loss the stickiness.


4.   Reattach the thick slat and tie off at the measured mark.
