Gather your materials:

  • Clean fabric shower curtain. Use any color of your choice, but we went with classic white.
  • Clean cotton hand towels
  • Iron-on adhesive
  • Colorful fabric ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Iron
  • Ironing board

Class up your curtain

This bathroom essential takes up a lot of visual space. Why be boring? In just a few easy steps you can make a plain shower curtain look drastically different.

  • Place iron-on adhesive along the edge of your curtain. We did the top edge, but the bottom edge would be just as pretty.
  • Next, grab your fabric ribbon and place it over the adhesive.
  • Trim your ribbon to the size of the shower curtain.
  • Using the medium heat setting on your iron, run steam over the ribbon and adhesive strip. Do this a few times. The heat will adhere the ribbon and adhesive to your curtain. And you're done!

Trim those hand towels!

Adding colorful ribbon to the edge of a towel is an easy way to decorate this bathroom staple.

  • Place iron-on adhesive on the towel.
  • Next, grab your fabric ribbon and place it over the adhesive.
  • Trim your ribbon to the size of the wash cloth.
  • Using the medium heat setting on your iron, run steam over the ribbon and adhesive strip. Do this a few times. The heat will adhere the ribbon and adhesive to your washcloth. Now they're ready to display!
