Tension rod to fit your doorway
Fabric to fit your doorway
Different colors of felt
Liquid Stitch Glue
Self-adhesive Velcro dots (optional)
Piece of paper
Using your measuring tape to measure your doorway, determine how long and wide your fabric should be, leaving at least one additional inch on each side and bottom and four additional inches on the top. Use the straight pins to hold your hems in place. Once you have the hems exactly how you want them, drizzle Liquid Stitch Glue onto the fabric to hold the hems in place. Let dry. Tip: Glue the top of the curtain last so your tension rod can easily slide through the hole.
Draw a triangle shape onto a piece of paper and cut it out. This will by your triangle bunting template. Pin the template onto the felt and cut the triangle out. Repeat until you get the desired amount of triangles you will need.
Spread your curtain out on the floor. Place your felt triangles on it to determine where they look best. Once you’re happy with your placement, unravel your ribbon from the spool and lay over the tops of the triangles. This will help you determine how much ribbon you need for each strip of bunting. Cut the ribbon to your desired length. Then take the felt and ribbon off the curtain. Stretch your ribbon out and glue the tops of the triangle to the ribbon to create the bunting. Let dry.
Once dry, place the bunting back onto the curtain and glue into place. Let dry.
Fold the curtain in half lengthwise and create a crease in the fabric. With your scissors, carefully cut the fabric lengthwise, ¾ of the way up from the bottom.
Insert your curtain rod in the top pocket and hang on your door. Optional: Adhere (or sew) self-adhesive Velcro dots to the curtains opening to help the curtain flaps stay closed.
