Hello friends! It's so great to be back guest posting today.  I'm delighted to share with you one of the easiest project you'll ever do in 15 minutes.


First of all, I think its safe to say everyone has his or her own personal idea on how best to improve upon their existing living space.  Some people think it takes a lot of time, money and resources to make home decor changes.  Many DIYers, myself included, believe there are countless little things and small projects you can do yourself without burning a hole in your wallet; little things that make a huge impact, like painting your walls or switching up your couch pillows.   For me, I'm always crunched for time, so I enjoy thinking of projects I can do in that short amount of time after dinner and before bed.

Today's project is exactly that, something that can be done in 30 minutes and only requires two ingredients: a few yards of pom pom trim and a hot glue gun. 

(I bought this pompom trim off Amazon)

Pom pom trim is popularly used in baby and toddler decor, however it really has limitless uses.  You can use it to add flare to pillows, bedskirts, table cloths, and curtains! Here is a before photo of our curtains:


Rather than sewing on the trim, I decided to glue the trim straight onto the curtains that were already hung.  There was no sense in creating a bigger project for myself when I could just get a step stool and glue the trim on the already happily hung curtains.  

First I pined the trim at the top of the curtain panel, then I began gluing until I reached the bottom of the panel.  I repeated this process for our second curtain panel.


This project is seriously beyond simple, and the result looks amazing! Even my fiancee said "I really like the pop of color they add". Say what?! Did my fiancee just say "pop of color"? Then it must be good.


Enjoy!
