The other day I saw some bamboo placemats at the store. I was immediately drawn to them but didn't really need them, so they spent a few nights there. Well, I passed by them again when I went back to return a tablecloth I had bought on that first trip, and it immediately hit me.
So, I scooped up two packs of bamboo placemats for $4.99 each, and then it was off to JoAnn's for some ribbon. I had no idea how this was going to work, but I knew what I might need.
Add a hot glue gun and some iron-on sticky strip stuff and for under $15.00 and less than an hour's work...............VIOLA......my new window somethings. They were cheap, easy, and do not cover up the molding around the windows.
All of my supplies, minus the iron
Backing the ribbon with that sticky stuff....
can someone help me with the name of that, please?
Lining up the placemats to cover the brown edges with the green ribbon. I rolled up the bottom and glued them all the way across.
I just tucked the whole piece on top of the miniblind brackets.Ooh, I am getting giddy just looking at this. I can't believe I did it.
Now, I need some teacup hooks to get the blind cords up and out of the way.
