Inspired by everyone's craftiness, I decided to show you a preppy solution to a problem I had. My favorite shopaholic shower curtain shows window displays from different countries, so Tokyo has kimonos in the window, London has Burberry plaids, Paris has lingerie, New York has trench coats, etc. etc. I found it for our freshman dorm and have enjoyed it ever since. Unfortunately, it was ripped off the rod by a past Evil Roomie (can you believe that people are that mean?!). This action resulted in multiple holes for the shower curtain rings being broken, ultimately keeping it from being able to hang. :( I was determined to figure out a way to bring it back to life AND make it look cuter than it did originally.
Off to Michael's I went... and I came back with a roll of Ultra Stitch Witch and 2 rolls of black polka dot ribbon. Here is what the final product turned out looking like!
I used the thick ribbon to fold over either side of the top, and made sure to Stitch Witch both sides really well. Then I was able to hang it back on the rod, but I still felt like it needed a little something extra. This is where the thinner coordinating polka dot ribbon came in handy. I just knotted this ribbon onto the shower curtain rings, and let them dangle naturally.
After I got finished with this project, I decided that my bathroom clock was looking a little bland. I decided to use the leftover thick ribbon to add a bow accent. All I did was tie the ribbon in a bow and hot glue the ends to the back of the clock. I then hung the clock with a nail, and attached the bow to the wall with 3-M Poster Tape.
P.S. -- If you don't have a clock in your bathroom, you will be amazed at how it helps you get out the door on time. I am notorious for taking a long showers and completely loosing track of time. This way, my clock is right outside the shower; and I can gauge exactly how much time I have to get ready.
