A few weeks ago, when we hung a few sets of Ikea curtains in Greta’s room
, I knew we’d be revisiting them in an effort to make them more special/quirky/fun. I casually
looked for pom-pom trim (because, really it is the most fun trim there is) to add to the edges for a couple weeks and then I started getting serious. Like, where is all the pom pom trim!?
Granted, JoAnns and Hobby Lobby had some–but they had a lot of….neon colors. I had my heart set on a sunny yellow–not bright, neon yellow–to tie in with the gold polka-dotted sheets. Spoiler alert–found some!
Etsy pulls through again. I found and ordered 10 yards of golden yellow 1/2 ball pom pom trim (for less than $20!) from this shop and it arrived in two or three days. I think ideally, I would have loved HUGE pom poms, but these half-inchers looks so sweet and are the perfect color–I can’t even complain. Check out how well they complement the sheets:
Gah! Attaching them to the curtains was really easy. I followed Kim’s method
and used hot glue. It worked great, was real fast and the trim isn’t going anywhere. I just put a small line of glue on the back edge of the curtains and pressed the trim on, working in small sections. When finished, the front looks like this:
And the back looks like this:
The results are really charming and just what these run of the mill Ikea curtains needed.
Mark this as one of those fast-less-than-an-hour-less-than-$20-projects. (Love those.) Hold me back before I add pom pom trim to all of our curtains.
UPDATE! You can now shop everything in our house right here!
P.S. Ribbon trimmed curtains in our family room!
