First things first, where did this month go? I have been a real slacker around here these last couple of weeks, and now it's the end of the month! I'm so excited to be back with this super easy no-sew drop cloth curtain project for you, it was an easy DIY that doesn't take much time at all.
So, here is a little background to this project. I like to switch my living room curtains out seasonally, and I picked up some grey linen curtains that I thought would be nice and light for the spring. Well, the grey had a weird purpley cast to it next to my grey walls, and it. made. me. crazy. Enter my "dropcloth curtains seem easy enough" idea, and here we are today.
And guess what? Drop cloth curtains are easy to make, and since they are a nice blank canvas (pun totally intended!), you can customize them to any style, and any room in your home. I even added grommets to the top for a more finished look, and a little painted detail at the bottom to add a little character!

Here is what you will need to make your own no-sew drop cloth curtains:
Fabric Paint (or Acrylic Paint and Textile Medium)
Ready to go? This will be quick!
Step 1: Wash and dry your drop cloth.
Step 2: Cut the drop cloth to your desired length (I used my old curtains as my guide). This is where I kept mine no-sew, I left the unfinished edge, I prefer the slight fraying. You can definitely hem the bottom with iron-on hem tape for a finished edge too, if you prefer.
Step 3: Using the template that came with the grommets, measure the spacing and trace the outlines for your grommets. Following the package instructions, attach the grommets to your curtains. (Come back for a full tutorial on this step next week!)
Step 4: Add a fun little pattern detail to the bottom section with fabric paint. Don't forget to set the paint with an iron according to the paint instructions!
