Creative window treatments and curtains.
Apply fabric to windows and create a stained glass look effect.
I applied this fabric with the corn starch mixture that I have posted about before.
my 'Scrap Fabric Mural'..see post here.
What is it with me and the corn starch mixture you ask?
Let's just say it is a GREAT inexpensive way to use what I have and make changes that are not permanent. :)
I made my little curtain a bit ago to block the sun that was shining in from our balcony door..
here is the post.
After that I needed to add something else to the top window. To answer everyone's question, YES the fabric and mixture comes off with ease.
This is what I did:
*Cut up several squares of coordinating fabric.
*Made the cornstarch mixture.
*Dipped each square in mixture and applied to window.
*After all the fabric is applied I used a damp rag to wipe around and dab excess mixture.
When you want to remove the fabric just take off each piece and then wash your window. It is VERY simple and easy clean up. You can wash the fabric and reuse.
1/4 cup of corn starch
1/2 cup of cold water
add 3 cups of boiling or hot water
Here are a few more pictures and ideas:
Another idea I had to spice up my blinds:
I used the same fabric and the cornstarch paste and placed small patch work peieces on the top of my window blinds. Take a look. :)
Oh wait... sorry not cool blind pic, cute kid pic. :)
Ok here is the fabric idea for my blinds.
I also want to leave you with this link. I pin-interested it a bit ago, it is how to use vintage sheets/fabric for your windows. The ideas involves NO sewing and a fun technique. Plus this ladies home is full of color. Enjoy.
Well that is all from me. My theme 'use what you have' came in handy several times during these projects. I am grateful for the fabric that was given to me earlier this year. :) My sister-n-law just sent me some scrap book paper and last Saturday I had a great time creating with it. That will have to be another post down the road however...
