Adding a little something to some plain curtains...

When I was decorating my little boys' room, I really wanted red curtains but when I went to PBK to buy some, they were sold out of red! After looking online and finding nothing, I bought some navy blue curtains instead. I liked, but never loved, the way the navy curtains looked in their room. They match the rest of the room, but were always lacking something...something red!

This was such an easy project...less than $10 and less than 30 minutes.

I went to hobby lobby and bought some red ric-rac and some "heat 'n' bond". Heat 'n' Bond is an amazing product and so easy to use. All you have to do is iron the heat 'n' bond on to your first fabric (red ric-rac), then iron your first fabric to your second fabric (navy curtains). It creates a great hold that doesn't require any sewing at all. Think of all the possibilities...ribbon, lace, ric-rac, etc.

I now love these curtains and am so happy that I was impatient and went with the navy blue curtains instead of the red. I do love ric-rac!!!
