Quick and Easy Window Shade Update

Sofia has a pair of very old window shades in her bedroom.  They work, mostly, so I didn't want to get rid of them and spend more money on new ones.  They are, however, a little messed up.  Both had small holes in them and one was ripping.

So I used packing tape to fix the tear from behind and then glued some old and free rick-rack using Tacky glue.

You can see that I just ran a line of glue across the front of the shade and stuck the rick-rack to it.  I then trimmed off the ends.

I had to pull the shades out so that the rick-rack wouldn't slide off while the glue was still wet.  Once they were completely dried I was all done.  Easy-peasey!
