DIY Bubble Shower Curtain

When I was dreaming up my bathroom makeover I knew the shower curtain would be the a main focal point. After searching and searching and finding nothing that would fit, I decided to create one of my own!

As luck would have it, I happened upon a curved shower curtain rod for just $10 on Craig’s List. Ten. Dollars. Needless to say, I snatched it up right away! No matter what type of shower curtain rod you have, you can still create this look. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 canvas drop cloths (or 1 that you cut in half and hemmed)
  • 3 shades of blue craft paint
  • 3 different sized ‘circles’
  • gray or silver/shimmery craft paint
  • scotch guard
  • piece of cardboard/cardstock for paint

Start by making a circle with each color of blue paint, this will help you evenly apply the paint to the rim of each ‘circle’.

Starting with your largest ‘circle’ dip the rim in each paint color, one at a time, and stamp bubbles up and down each curtain pane. I chose not to wipe off the paint color before going to another one because it created a marbled/ombre effect on some bubbles.

Repeat the same process with your medium and small circles as well.

Now that you’ve stamped all 3 circles sizes, take a step back and make sure you don’t have any ‘empty’ spaces. If you do, go back and stamp a few more bubbles.

Now grab your silver paint of choice and stamp circles in all three sizes, overlapping and filling in any additional open spaces.

For me the silver paint was more of a background color or a shadow so I didn’t worry about the placing too much, I just stamped it wherever I thought it looked good!

After the paint is dry, hang your shower curtain and give it a few coats of Scotch Guard.

You could stamp any shape you can dream up like stars or leaves from your yard. What do you think, what shape would you stamp?
