Dress Your Windows for Spring

Spring is just around the corner. It is the time of year I love watching my garden come alive as the leaves on the trees start to show their colors and the tulips emerge from the ground. It is amazing to watch as the earth gives birth to an array of colorful flowers. Now is a good time to welcome the outdoors in by removing heavy drapery panels that block out the light and the view. You can replace them with sheer swags that softly frame the window.

Above is a single scarf that frames the window and softens the look of the wood blinds.

Here there are two swags draped on the same foam rod to create an asymmetrical design. In both pictures the window scarves are hung on a foam rod. This type of rod simplifies creating the swags because you are able to pin the scarf to the rod and control the fabric.
