I gathered up the necessary supplies.

The material is a curtain panel I picked up @ Target.

Turned up the tunes Note and got to work!

Per Jena’s instruction!

DO NOT cut the pull cord like I did!

ACK!!!

I had cut the other two pull cords to keep them all the same length.

I tied all three pull cords back to the same length and burnt the ends with a lighter to melt the cord a bit to keep the knots from slipping.

I have never worked with fabric glue before and was surprised at how well the glue held!

  8. I saw Jena's post, too, and even bookmarked it for future use. Now I see, again, that it truly is an easy and doable project! Good to know! Yours turned out beautifully.. so neat and crisp! And the barn wood with spoon hooks? Perfectly set off with the tiny boxwood wreath.. love it all! And guess what? I'm your newest follower.. can't wait to see the next darling project completed. I would love it if you hopped over to my blog for a look-see and I invite you to follow along. Love making new friends, don't you?
