Tissue Paper Flower Window Treatment

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in Anna Belle's Room | 16 comments

I LOVE for sunlight to pour into a room.

It makes it feel so spacious,

warm,

and welcoming.

However, I don’t like it when sunlight pours into your bedroom

as soon as the sun rises,

waking up children

who should still be sleeping.

Such is the case with Anna Belle’s room.

Her room gets direct morning sun.

And, she has a large arched window that invites it ALL in!

I didn’t want to block out all of the light.

Some light is nice.

Too much is not.

This is the problem window.

These are the problem fighting supplies:

fishing line

scissors

1 cup hook

tissue paper flowers in all colors

I bought mine from Hobby Lobby (wedding section), Pick Your Plum, and Martha Stewart.

I screwed the hook in right above the arched window.

I cut off random lengths of fishing line,

tied each end of the line to the middle of a flower,

and hooked the line onto the hook.

Over…

…and over…

…and over…

…again.

Until I had a mass of flowers capable of almost covering the entire arched window.

I can’t wait to see the kaleidoscope of colors pouring in her room!

Hopefully it will block out enough of the light.

I’ll know in the morning 🙂

Life to the full!

  5. This is so adorable!!

    So colorful and fun!!

  6. Melissa, we have one of those arches in our bedroom too. I hate it. It is impossible to sleep in on sunny days. I have a cheap paper folded thingy in it – which helps but not nearly enough as I’d like. I like your solution for your daughter! – Karen

  7. I love how it turned out. I fully expect the Lorax to visit at some point.

  8. Gorgeous!!!

  9. wow so pretty, the flowers are perfect. Did you make all those tissue paper flowers? They really make the room even prettier. Hope the flowers block enough light so she can sleep. Hope all well with you and yours. Happy weekend.
    I couldn’t sleep so went out into l/r but the light coming in thru the top part of front door was blinding me as house faces East. I had to get up and put a towel over it.
