  • Tape measure
  • Chain rings
  • Curtain Rod
  • Curtain Rings

Instructions:

  1. Measure the window area or the size you want the curtain to be
  2. Make sure you have enough film slides. Compute!

  5. Attach the finished product to the curtain rod, and voila!

For comparison, the 2 photos shown shows a finished product that is 5ft 7in tall by 6ft wide and consists of 36 curtain rings, 1,152 vintage film slides and 1,152 slide mounts and almost 7,000 silver tone rings.
