Sometimes it's difficult to decorate a dorm/temporary living place. And windows look rather naked without curtains. Solution? Bunting banner curtains.
The rest of the ceiling from my room:
I tend to overdecorate-- my corner is the one covered in posters, photography and art cut from Goodwill books. In my defense, I sit at my desk and homework it up so I need inspiration and distractions.
Another cheap, decorative love of mine:
paper lanterns and Christmas lights. Best way to home-ify a collegiate room. :)
(poinsettia lights. Lovely in July and December.)
Making bunting banner is SO simple. Here is one tutorial but I feel like it can be even simpler than this.
1. Cut triangles of fabric.
2. Flip the patterned sides together, sew along the edges.
3. Turn the fabric rightside out-- iron flat.
4. Take ribbon, any strip of fabric, iron it in half and then sew the triangles in between. VOILA!

I really love how the little flags look. :) I also love the view from the window even more with curtains.
View from roof of my house. Rockin', eh?
