While I love pattern, curtains are always one of those things I struggle with purchasing in a pattern. I usually want curtains that are neutral and classic so they don't compete with the other accessories I might bring into a room. However, I do love figuring out ways to bring fun details to curtains that add some color without over-taking the whole room. So, today, we're bringing you this fun pom pom curtain DIY! It's super cute for a kid's room or for any space that needs a touch of whimsy...

Here's how:

1. Decide what sized poms you want and how spaced apart you want them to be on your curtain. We opted for 1" wide poms spaced about 5" apart. So, using an extra small pom pom maker, that worked out to about 45 pom poms for an 84” length curtain.

2. Using a new curtain or one you already have, make sure the curtain doesn't have any fold lines or wrinkles on it, and iron them out if so. After making the pom poms and trimming the middle tie, sew them onto curtains through the base of each pom, spacing them however you like. For our curtain, we made rows of 4 and 3 poms, leaving about 5 inches between each pom pom.

3. Finally, hang your curtain up and enjoy! These types of curtains should not be in an area where they could get dirty or wet quickly (ie. not in a kitchen or bathroom). If they are kept in a clean, dry room, they'll stay fresh and colorful for a long time!
