I held my fourth Little Flowers meeting in early December. The girls made a simple Curtain Apron for their craft. It was a lovely craft edition for the meeting since St. Martha is a patron saint of homemakers. The apron was intended to be gifted for Christmas.
this is an up-cycle craft
- valance style curtain (I purchased 18 valances from my local thrift store to create aprons for 36 girls)
- ribbon (I used a min of 1.5 yards of ribbon for ea. apron)
- safety pin
Approximate cost of ea. apron (if items need to be purchased) – $2
Approximate cost of ea. apron (if items are on hand) – FREE
- cut the valance vertically at a place that will yield enough coverage for your desired homemaker.
- optional: hem the cut side of the valance.
- cut ribbon to the desired length. long enough to tie around the waist of the intended homemaker.
- attached safety pin to the end of the ribbon.
- thread the ribbon, safety pin first, into the top portion of the valance that was indented for a curtain rod.
- remove the safety pin and prepare the Curtain Apron for presentation.
