DIY No Sew Pom Pom Curtains

Lyla has been asking for curtains in her room for awhile now and my heart has been set on these, but at almost $100/panel, they are a bit more than I wanted to spend.  So, while I was browsing at Hobby Lobby a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon the this pom pom trim and my wheels started turning.  I've seen lots of really cute rooms that have the pom pom trim curtains, which is basically the same look I was going for.  So I decided to give up my love for the tassels and go with the pom poms.

Because I can barely sew on a button, these would have to be no sew!  Have you ever used fabric glue?  It's pretty awesome!  Really easy to use, dries clear, and the hold is fantastic!  So, for $1.99/yard for the the trim, $19 for the panel from Target and $0 for the fabric glue (already had it, but runs about $4) I was able to make one panel for about $23!

My daughter absolutely loves the look and I of course love the price!  So all is good around here :)

Have a great day!!

    1. Thanks Nat! I so wish I knew how to sew. I look at all the pretty fabrics and think about all the things I could make for a fraction of the cost :)

  2. Love this idea! I tend to gravitate toward white everything when I decorate, and I just moved so I have a lot of ideas swirling! This would be a great way to use white curtains with a little pop of an accent color!

  3. So pretty and perfect for a little girl's room. I can sew, but have been known to use fabric glue now and then - it works like a charm!

  7. LOVE!!! Wells has the S&L pompom panels in her bedroom and I've been wanting to try a diy version for the kids' shower curtain.

  8. Oh gosh! Your post got me at "no sew!" Hahaha! Lyla's room looks gorgeous and it's made even more so with the fabulous addition of those drapes. The pink tassels are just an amazing idea on how to make an ordinary curtain into something super cute and girly. Thank you for sharing that! Wishing you all the best!
