Using roller window shades is as popular as ever right now because they're relatively inexpensive, practical and can actually look really great. And, If you are looking for a more custom look, they are easily transformed through the addition of a few ribbons…

Tip Junkie came up with a tutorial on a cleverly simple way to embellish roller shades using everday products — ribbon and glue.

Of course, you can choose to do whichever pattern or shape you desire, but playing up the rectangular shape of the shades works well — a mitered square pattern was used in the example. The time and money put into this DIY is so minimal, especially when seeing how good the"after' results are. For less than $40 and just under an hour you can create a unique window covering.
