Some of our favorite decor projects are those born of frugality. Reader Jaime spied some beautiful pompom trimmed curtains in a magazine, but when she tracked them down she discovered they cost $250. Not to be deterred, she decided to make her own. PomPom fringe is available in many colors and adds a sweet touch to a basic curtain. Jaime aptly describes it as "girly without being frilly." She walks you through the steps for this simple, but impactful embellishment on a blog she co-authors called Prudent Baby: DIYs for Small Fries where you'll find lots of other clever ideas.
(In addition to prudent DIY advice, Jaime collects prudent advice for her baby daughter here.)
