DIY Thrifty Thursday

What to do with a single curtain panel.....

Heather, one of my wonderful readers, submitted a DIY project that I absolutely loved!   It was a great use of an odd item, she got it on clearance PLUS used a 20% off coupon!!  You go girl!  Here's here story:

I went to BBBeyond and hit the clearance section, found a single panel curtain for $4.00.  I always wondered what people do with ONE panel (84" long) of curtain?  The price was right and even better when I used one of my 20% off coupons.  I went home with it and came up with this idea:

My 3 year old daughter loves puppets and doing puppet shows for me and her little brother.  So I cut a 12 x 15 inch hole out of the curtain, added some creative love (binding around the raw edges and miniature stage curtains) and turned it into a puppet show curtain.  My daughter loves it and plays with it all the time.  I attached some photos for you to see of it in use and when not in use (I had my husband hang a curtain hook if you were wondering).

And here is her creative project:
 And when it's not in use it tucks neatly out of the way.
How awesome it that?  Who knew a doorway could be so fun?!?

Thanks for submitting that Heather!  Be sure to grab an "I was featured" button in the right margin.
