And because this post has to do with classroom decoration, I'm also linking up with The Applicious Teacher
My made it Monday is seven years old, but when I started unpacking my classroom yesterday, I knew I had to share!
I am OCD (majorly), so there is a pattern of colors. It takes a lot of ribbon, so you'll definitely need to measure the height of your window and multiply it by a lot (I know...not very helpful). I just tied on each piece of ribbon with a double knot and then it was done.
For the tension rod, you definitely need to measure the width of your window to buy one big (or small) enough. If you have a large tension rod like mine that uses a screw to keep the tension, then you wont be able to slide the ribbons over the screw if you tie the ribbons tightly...word of advice: don't tie the ribbons super tight against the rod. Then, you don't have this problem.
I didn't get to use my ribbon rod last year because I had no windows. When I saw this beauty yesterday, I was ecstatic about getting to use it again :)
Now a shameless plug, PLEASE follow my page. I have less than 10 followers, and my confidence needs a boost :)
Have a great Tuesday!
