Dressing your Curtains

Have you checked out the new online shelter mag Rue yet? The gals over there are super creative and have some great features in addition to the beautiful home tours: color palates based on home tours, ways to make those home tours your own, and DIY projects. Plus, there are shopping guides, entertainment ideas, downloadable templates, and recipes. Yay!

Today I'm going to share with you an easy way to add a little glamour to your home, as seen in the pages of Rue. They get their inspiration from the classic pairing of a little black dress and layered gold necklaces.


In just an afternoon, you can make this gorgeous curtain tie. Just pick up some necklaces and broaches from a flea market, estate sale, Target, Forever21, or J.Crew on sale. Or if you're just looking to add a little sparkle for a single event, why not use necklaces you already have? Grab a wire cutter and a pair of pliers, and experiment with layering. If you're using necklaces you'd like to wear again, just hook them on to one another.

You could also use jewelry as napkin rings. Simply wrap necklaces or bracelets around the napkin at each place setting. If you're feeling very generous, the jewelry can be used as party favors. Think about it for your next girls night, birthday party, or bachelorette party. And then invite me.

Here are a few pretty options for your viewing pleasure:

Crystal lariat necklace
J.Crew (sale - $29.99)

Forever 21 (final sale - $6.80)
Forever 21 (final sale - $12.80)
Where do you find home inspiration?
