First measure how long your blinds are. Lay them out in a large work area and fit them to the length of your window. Then snip away the ladder strings on both sides. This is the string that connects the slats. DO NOT remove the thick cord that moves the blinds up and down.
Each slat will need to be 7-inches apart. Divide the length of your window by seven to determine how many slats you’ll need. Remove the left-over slats.
Lay the fabric face down and measure the slats to be about 7-inches apart on the fabric. Fabric should extend about 2-inches around the blinds on all side.
Cut to fit and then use Mod Podge to glue the fabric in place. See how she does this at the 1:40 mark in the video.
Then glues the fabric to the ends of the slats too. Use clothespins to hold the fabric in place while it dries.
See the final result at the end of the video.
