You will need:
blackout material (size depends on window)
curtain fabric
wooden rod
two thin strips of wood
two wooden blocks (6x6x1 inch)
shower curtain hooks
grommets and a grommet puncher

Step 1:

Measure the size of your windows. Purchase fabric (thick) and blackout material. Include a few extra inches for the blackout material, and at least a foot for the fabric. Measure out and cut both the fabric and blackout material for each side of the window (half of what you measured, length wise).
These look great! When we were curtain shopping we wanted blackout curtains, but they were always so expensive! Where did you find the blackout material to make these?
