How to make black and white checkered curtains tutorial

A while ago I spotted fabulous modern black and white designer curtains so I came up with a way to DIY black and white checkered curtains for our home.

Curved Arrow

• heat transfer vinyl  • cutting mat • craft knife • pencil • iron • metal ruler • wax paper • cardboard • painters tape • Ikea curtains

Supplies needed:

Cut squares

Use the cutting mat, metal ruler, and craft knife to cut even squares out of the heat transfer vinyl.


Make a cardboard template

Cut a template out of cardboard so you can easily lay out squares on the curtain fabric.


Iron on vinyl squares

Use the iron and wax paper to iron the heat transfer vinyl squares onto the curtains.


Continue with the pattern

Fill the entire curtain fabric with the same even square pattern of the heat transfer vinyl.


Hang the curtains

You can use grommet curtains or any other curtains. Simply hang them and you are done.


The curtains look great in a modern setting and also in a traditional setting for extra interest. Check out the full tutorial.

Here is another inspiration of using a similar checkered pattern on walls in our bathroom.
