To start with I took down the mini blinds and cleaned the window. Here's what I thought about the blinds :)
So,this is what I had to work with.
I went and found the roll of contact paper that I had bought to laminate some of the kids art work to hang on the wall, some scissors, and a piece of card stock. I drew a design on the card stock and cut it out. This is my stencil. Not sure what pattern to use? There is inspiration everywhere. I got mine from a piece of material. After I got my stencil "just right" I traced it on the back of the contact paper and started cutting out my pieces.
I used a razor to trim the edges. It isn't perfect, but I love the way it turned out! And the best part was that the contact paper only cost $6 and I still have over half a roll left!
Here is the finished project :)
