DIY Pom Pom Tassel Curtains

Happy Monday!!!

I want to share with you the progress on Isa's room. Remember the post about her room inspiration here ? Well I completed the curtain panels for her window treatments, and the results are perfect! They were exactly what I needed for her room transformation, and they are a fantastic option for a day bed that's placed in front of a window where hanging curtains can be a challenge.

Take a look at my DIY pom pom tassel curtains.



These were originally inspired from this post on love Meagan where she transformed her office window nook from this:


to this:


It is a beautiful office and transformation that you should definitely go see. What I loved most about her idea was how the tassel curtains draped around her window seat which is exactly what I needed to go around my day bed and still look stylish. I think it definitely accomplished that goal.

Here is the step by step tutorial on DIY pom pom tassel curtains. 


What you'll need:

- curtain panels of your choice
-pom pom tassel fringe measured to the length of your curtains plus 2" on the top and bottom for a finished edge. I used 98" curtain panels that I already had so I bought 5.5yds of tassel fringe for mine. 
- tacky glue
-sewing pins

Step 1:
Lay your curtain panels out over a flat surface and place a line of tacky glue along the INSIDE edge of your curtain panel. 

Step 2:
Line your tassel along the line of glue and secure it with sewing pins placing a pin every couple of inches. 

 
Step 3:
Let your curtains dry over night and then remove your sewing pins. Hang and marvel at your new creation. 

Here is Isabella's bed and window after the new DIY tassel curtains were hung. ***LOVE***







 What do you think? Are you digging the pom pom tassels that I've been adding all over the place???

I love them, and now want to add pom pom tassels everywhere! Thanks Meagan for this lovely idea.
