    Holiday DIY: Snowflake Curtain

    Often the simplest ideas really can by the most impactful. I've been searching for a solution for the very bare looking windows in our sunroom, and given my penchant for paper cut-outs, this one caught my eye right away. Beautiful paper snowflakes cut from simple white paper turn the whole room into a magical, winter wonderland. If all goes well with my Christmas baking plans, I should have a similar one up tonight!

    Fantabulous idea but how do you hang it?


    So pretty! I have a paper cut-out hanging in my son's room and love it- this would be so pretty for an all white holiday palate.


    Diana - isn't it just so pretty!

    Nannykim - you can tie each string to a curtain ring - or to a thumb tack on the wall above :)


    Christine - you're right it would be just perfect for an all white holiday palette.


    This is truly a wonderful winter decoration! I wonder if you can achieve this too with super starched and pressed doilies?


    Ooh this is gorgeous and so easy! Thanks I'm going to feature this in my weekly worthy reads!

    Now, that I want to see! Your very own snowflake window treatment!

    Not a snowflake in sight in Seattle...

    I am taking a winter break from blog land. I want to spend some quality time with my family.

    Thank you for your friendship and your support this year, Sharalee. Not only do you offer us so much inspiration, but your attitude is also always so upbeat. (Don't change a thing!).

    Merry Christmas to you.

    Love, Mon


    This is awesome. Impossible, however, with 2 cats.


    Oh fun!

    Thanks for sharing such a wonderful idea! Very pretty!

    I always loved doing paper cuts as a kid. So I got inspired by paper snow flakes to create an acrylic snow flake for Jingle & Mingle, a charity event that raises money by auctioning designer holiday wreaths.

    As for the lovely curtain, using a slightly sturdier material, such as vinyl could make it last longer.
