{DIY: Shower Curtain to Front Door Curtain TUTORIAL}

Hi there! My mom was visiting a few weeks ago and she helped me with a little front door makeover!

I don't know about you, but as soon as spring hits, I want to redecorate ALL THE THINGS.

I had big plans to make some new curtains for the window on our front door, but after pricing out the amount of fabric I would have needed, it would have been over $35. No thanks! 

 On a recent trip to Home Goods, I ran accross this awesome Cynthia Rowley paisley shower curtain for $14. Done.

This was SUPER easy to make! Here we go!

All I did was fold down the edge that has the button holes for the curtain hooks. I folded down their existing hem line which was the perfect size for the rod I was hanging it on it. I stitched it down with a 3/8" seam allowance.

Then I hung it up on the door and measured how much I needed to cut off. Sorry I don't have a pic of that part. I marked where I needed to cut plus and extra inch for the seam.

After I cut it to the length I needed, I just hemmed up the bottom edge. I pressed it up 1/2 inch, then another 1/2 inch and stitched it down at 3/8" seam allowasnace.

That's it! Easy peasy and way more cost effective than trying to make my own from scratch! I love when that happens! And guess what?!?

Since I was able to cut so much off the bottom, there is tons of fabric left to make some pillows for the couch! 

Have a great day!

  1. What a great idea Elizabeth! It's such a fun, cheery fabric too!

  2. Great idea! When I read the title I thought, "Why put a shower curtain on the inside of the door?" <-- Like hanging from the door frame or something... Anyway. Then I saw this and I love it! Great idea - fabric is sooo expensive!

    Happy Wednesday!

  3. This is great! I've been wanting to do something like this at my front and back door.
