You may remember from this post that there is a small, bare window beside my front door. It’s only about 20″ wide and I’ve never hung any window treatment over it. I thought about it a few times, but was never really sure what I wanted there. Privacy isn’t an issue since it’s such a small window and there is a small evergreen tree right in front of it on the outside. Well, with all the Christmas decorations surrounding it, that window immediately stuck out like a sore thumb and needed some attention. I knew I didn’t want to decorate it Christmasy – it would be bare again in a week or two. So I came up with the idea of decorating it for winter. Snowflakes!
I made white snowflakes using my Silhouette Cameo. I found a snowflake file in the on-line Silhouette store and enlarged it to fit on a 12 x 12 page. Once I had them all cut out (all 50 of them!), I strung them together with needle and a strong thread making 5 strings of 10 snowflakes each.
I covered a tension curtain rod by wrapping it with blue and white bakers string, then tied on the strings of snowflakes.
I like how it looks almost like lace and how the snowflakes slowly spin.

What a lovely and whimsical curtain. Love it!
What a great little curtain that you made. Was it time consuming to sew them together or did it go pretty quickly?
Thanks Beth. It actually went together pretty fast. The longest part was waiting for the Cameo to cut all the snowflakes!
That’s a very cute wintery window treatment idea. I love it.

Cool idea – however, was it not very annoying when the sun shines through and creates lots of little shadows etc everywhere?
Not at all! There’s a tree right outside that window, so little sunshine gets through.
