DIY Roman Blinds

If your blinds are too boring and you need to spice up your interior, it is the easiest way to do this. There are a few methods to make roman blinds, most of which include sewing of wooden dowels to the fabric. But today, I’ll show you how to make roman shades by using your current blinds. It is the easier method of all I think, because it requires no sewing, and you already have the frame for the fabric. Make sure you’ve cleaned your blinds from dirt and dust beforehand. Otherwise you may stain the fabric for the shade.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    Quick tip: When choosing the fabric, aim for a heavier one, which can be usually found at the home decor department of a fabric store. Unfold a meter from the end to see how it falls. If it drapes slightly undulated, then this is the fabric you’ve been looking for. Before shopping, measure the window frame which you’ll be decorating, and cut the chosen fabric 12 inches longer than your window, and 6 inches wider.

  • Step 2

    Fix the plug on the bottom slat to set the desired length of your roman shades.

  • Step 3

    Remove the rest of the slats.

  • Step 4

    Remove the blind and iron the fabric folds to make the hems.
