What You Will Need:

4. Scissors
5. Modge Podge
6. Bowl
7. Foam brush
8. Clothespins
9. Measuring tape
10. Clothing iron

Step 1:

Measure the length of your window to know the size of blinds you need.

Step 2:

Lay the blind face down and cut the ladder strings on both sides, but NOT the thicker cord adjacent to it.

Step 3:

Divide the length of your window in inches to seven as you will need to space wood plats approximately seven inches apart.

Step 4:

Remove the wood plats you won’t need by breaking them apart. Oooh, this looks a bit therapeutic too!

Step 5:

Get your fabric and face it down. Place the shade on top and space the wooden plats seven inches apart.

Step 6:

Be sure to have excess fabric measuring about two inches on all sides. Run a clothes iron.

Step 7:

Remove the blinds stopper located at the top bracket and cut the adjacent fabric to wrap around.

Step 8:

Apply Modge Podge on the fabric and stopper. Secure with a clothespin until it becomes dry.

Step 9:

Apply Modge Podge on the two sides of each wooden plat and on the two-inch excess fabric near it. Secure with clothespin.

Step 10:

Cover both the top and bottom part of your shade with fabric. Be sure to fold the outer edges. Secure with clothespin until it dries.

Step 11:

Once everything is dried up. Install your DIY Roman shade just like how you would install faux wooden blinds.
