One Simple Idea: Adding Ribbon To Roller Window Shades

Tip Junkie

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.
