Dressing Up Your Curtains with Memories

Dressing up your Curtains with Memories

Trying to find a way to decorate your home that really shows off you and your family’s personality can be a difficult task. The task becomes even harder when you try to do it on a budget, and in a way that hardly anyone else has done before. Putting memories on your curtains with pictures and images is easy, affordable, and a very unique way to show off who you and your family is.

Select Images

Pick out the pictures, names, brands, or images you want on your curtains. It can be anything from your children’s pictures to your name, if you don’t have kids. Either way, pick it out and get ready!

Print it

Print out the images you selected on transfer paper. You can find transfer paper online or at any general store in your area, such as Walmart.

Heat it up

Next, place the transfer paper facing down onto a spot on the curtains that you want to add an image to. Heat that surface using an iron, in small circular motions, for a few minutes.

See the Results

After you have fully heated the spot where the image belongs, you can peel the transfer paper back, and voila! Your favorite picture or name is now etched onto your curtain for the world to see. You can place as many images onto one drape as you want, creating a collage or just having a few here and there. The possibilities are endless!

Placing images onto your curtains is also a great way to change the color of them. Use blank transfer papers and print whatever colors you want onto them, following the process above to get them onto your curtains. This would allow for a flurry of different colors and intensities all across your drapes, giving them a fancy new design without having to buy new ones!

Jazzing up your Home on a Budget

It’s hard trying to decorate your home with little to no money. That’s why DIY tricks and ways to save while decorating are becoming more and more popular. Here are just a few of the many tricks out there to decorate your home in an elegant, beautiful way – all while on a tight budget.

Thrift the Day Away

Secondhand, resale, and thrift stores all have one very important thing in common – everything in them is ridiculously cheap! Garage and yard sales are also a lovely option. Using these stores and sales you can put together a theme for each room in the house. Finding decorations that have been given away or passed off to someone else is a great option to get like-new merchandise at a very used price.

Paint Away the Old

Painting is the easiest way to make an old room look new again. Being one of the cheapest decoration items to buy, it’s easy to paint a brand new color onto a room to give it a new feeling. It’s a great way to not get tired of the same old thing, and even someone on a very tight budget can afford to do it.

Friends and Family Save the Day

Hire your friends and family to do the same dirty work you would have to pay someone to do. If 10 people put in an hour of work each, then everything is finished easily in 10 hours, and you get to spend a day with the people you love most. You can even put together food and drinks for them after their hour, making it even more worthwhile to help you out.

It’s easy to decorate your home on a budget – you just have to know where to work and who to get to help you. Using the tips above you can save money by decorating your home with less of a price tag than you originally thought.
