    1. Measure the length of the door and add 4". Cut this length from the blue and pink bolts of Oly-Fun fabric. Open the fabric (it is folded in half) and cut it along the crease to create the panels. Place the Oly-Fun fabric on a drop cloth to protect the work area.
    2. Place the Moroccan Tile stencil on the blue fabric. Use a stencil brush to apply 24K Gold all over the fabric. Let dry.

    5. Instruction #3
    6. Place the stencil on the pink fabric. Use a stencil brush with the Gold Craft Twinkles to create the glittery pattern on the fabric.
    7. Instruction #4
    8. Paint a yellow sheet of Oly-Fun Fabric with Gold Craft Twinkles. Let dry completely. This will be used to anchor the curtains to the wall.
    9. Fold the top 3" of the fabric down and use hot glue to create a “tube” to insert the tension rods in. Hang the pink panels on one rod first, then hang up the blue panels. Use the yellow pieces to tie back the curtains. Wrap them around the curtains and hot glue the ends together. Hang a lantern in between the panels.
