1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / COVERING UGLY CURTAINS THAT ARE PRO INSTALLED on: January 07, 2014 07:50:49 PM
A little bit of background info- I'm a senior in college, and plan on living at home for a few years after to save up money to buy a car (If I move out now most of my income will be going toward rent and my car is approaching 17 years old).

Anyways- my parents had these ugly ugly curtains installed in the entire house. They cover the whole window from about 6 inches above to 6 inches down. The nice thing is that they are blackout curtains- as I have two windows in my room.

But I really can't stand the color, and I'd like to spice up my room a bit- something more me.

My question is, how can I cover these up? I was thinking of making my own curtains and attaching them with clothes pins, but that might look weird? I don't know how I feel about safety pins because I do not want to damage the curtains (They were really expensive)

Any ideas?
2  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Candy Printables/College Student Gifts on: January 30, 2013 03:01:11 PM
This is the second Valentine's day with my boyfriend- but the first one we are celebrating. His brother's birthday is on Valentine's Day...so it kind of gets it in the way. I'm giving him a lot of little gifts, I plan on giving him one gift till Valentine's day.
I used these:

and

I've also got a picture frame (dollar store) and put a picture of us inside to keep at his desk at work.

This is what I have so far

I ordered the ipod case online for a few dollars.

I just did my first pair of glitter shoes and I would say put two or three coats on the hat- then LIGHTLY spray a coat of clear spray paint in a gloss finish.

I would go ahead for the jacket do something other than sequins- spray paint, fabric paint, or I think gold fabric glitter would work nicely! If you have time to sew a jacket similar to what she has, just cover it in gold glitter. I remember seeing something at Micheal's about fabric specific glitter or glue?

I would think a high low skirt would be perfect for this costume- one in a sheer blue or green fabric.
Wear over a pencil skirt (or something form fitting) or a pair of leggings.

Here's a great tutorial on it:

Or you could make a pixie skirt out of the netting- layering various fabrics.



I would dye the corset in a similar/matching color and perhaps add some glitter (fabric glitter) to it- if you aren't worried about changing it.

And as far as hair- I would do something like this:

MaxCalifornia has a post on her blog about putting a Batman symbol cut out of cheap felt and sewing them to the back of the shoe. I would suggest a thick needle and just hand sew it!
