Hot Pink Duck Tape Curtains

Have you ever used “Duck Tape” on a curtain project? No? Well, guess what!! We did! Even better, it is HOT PINK!

We were in line at WalMart, waiting to check out with a 2″ wide package of blanket binding (ribbon) to use as reinforcement for our DIY grommet top curtains to close the closet in our daughter’s hot pink bedroom, when she spotted the hot pink duck tape and asked, “Mom, Mom, Mom, look!! Can we use this instead? Pleeeeeeeassssse?!”

I couldn’t think of a good reason why not. Heck, it’s kind of fun!!

So, we bought the hot pink “duck tape” brand tape to use as a reinforcement for the sheer curtain materials prior to installing the grommets on the curtain panels for her closet.

Here she is, working with Hot Pink Duck Tape! :

( You’ll notice that by Applying the tape on BOTH sides of the material and using a brayer, we were able to make the duck tape stick to itself through the loose, open weave of the sheers!)

See our littlest helper, age 1 and a half? 🙂

In other hot pink bedroom news, I also finished sewing all of the sheers and curtain panels. See next photo…. Aaaaand, for her hot pink bedroom, we bought her the little glittery mosquito net type canopy that she wanted…Ten year old girl, she is, indeed, wanting such a sparkly thing! Love her!!
