Hadley's Nursery/Big Girl Bedroom: Pom-Pom Curtains

Over the weekend, Tal hung the pom-pom curtains 
that I dressed-up for Hadley's nursery/big girl bedroom!

At Ikea, I bought two pairs of white Vivan curtains for $10 per pair:

My inspiration for this project came from Serena and Lilly's French Tassel curtains
...but they were $98 for one 96-inch panel (way out of my budget)!

My knock-off version took about 4.5 hours to complete 
and cost $58 total for 4 panels...less than $15 per panel!

To get started, I washed and ironed Ikea's Vivan curtains.
Then, to add some color and whimsy to the curtains, 
I bought 25 yards of turquoise pom-pom trim for $36 on Etsy:

I selected pom-pom trim that coordinated with 
Hadley's Seaside Floral Bedding from PBteen:

I hot-glued the pom-pom trim to the curtain: 

Finally, since the panels were 98-inches long, 
I used Heat 'n Bond to shorten the curtains by 2 inches, 
so they barely touched the floor:

Adding trim to basic white curtains was a simple, inexpensive way 
to tie in the color scheme for Hadley's nursery/big girl bedroom:

Thanks to Tal for hanging the curtains high and wide for me!
