1 set of mini blinds the width of your window
Fabric of your choice
Iron-on hem tape
Sticky back Velcro
1. Open your mini blinds and lay them out on a flat surface, extended as long as they will go.
5. Set aside the blinds and lay out your fabric. Cut a rectangular piece of fabric to these dimensions (width of your window + 2 inches x length of your window + 5 inches). My fabric ended up being 37″ x 65″ since my window was 35″ x 60″.
9. Before gluing the bottom weighted bar in place, tie big knots in the ends of the lift strings, pull them tight, and replace the white plugs.
12. Time for the installation! Take a trip to the lucky window. Install one bracket on each side, drilling the screws into the your window frame! Probably a good idea to test it out – go ahead and pull those strings to make sure you didn’t accidentally glue them to anything. Congratulations! Your Roman shade is done!
