I got this curtain at Pier 1, but it was too plain, so I added ribbon in between the strands.  It wasn't the cheapest project ever, but it was so simple, & it made a huge difference in my dorm room.  I used a little bit of by-the-roll ribbon from Joanne's, but it's mostly that 55 cents for 10 yards stuff.  I hot glued the ribbon to itself so it would hang straight down.  It's really easy to change the ribbon...I'm planning on doing more muted colors for my apartment next semester, or maybe just off-white.  We'll see!


Can you tell which side of the room is mine?  Wink

What a cool idea!!!  I love the texture differences with the beads and ribbon.  We have used some fun things for curtains...colored straws work great and you can get really intense and make a design or pattern with them. I'm thinking ribbon and straws would be a fun combo!  Right now we are working on a "mural curtain". Painting on heavy cardboard (super big piece) and then planning on cutting into strips. Hope it works!!!

Thanks for the comments!   Grin

Wowww...that mural curtain will be the coolest thing ever if it works!  So, so much easier than trying to paint individual beads to make a picture... I thought about trying that for about 5 minutes.  But this!  Keep us posted!
