Make Your Own Nautical Shower Curtain 

So lately the nautical theme has really taken off- everywhere you look you can see anchors in home decor and fashion.

For me, the anchor has a little more meaning. I was raised by my grandfather, and he was a Navy man. You can see his anchor tattoo on his arm taking care of me as a baby in this picture. When he passed away I even got that exact anchor tattooed on my back as a tribute to the amazing man that raised me.

So naturally, I LOVE all the anchor/nautical decor that has been coming out! My sister gave me a large red anchor last year for my birthday and I wasn’t sure what to do with it… Then I decided to redo my spare bathroom. I found some cute shower curtains online, but most of them were about $50- and I just didn’t want to spend that much. So, I decided to make my own! I already had a solid black shower curtain hanging up, so I just added my own nautical flare to it!

I went to JoAnn’s and purchased a half yard of fabric in a design I liked. (On sale, it was only $1.50!) When I got it home, I took the large red anchor my sister gave me and used it as my template… If you don’t already have a giant anchor laying around your house, stencils are available online!

I placed the fabric face down and  traced out the anchor with a pen. When I cut out the fabric, I left some space between the outline and the cut, because I wanted to fray the ends of the anchor.

I then positioned the anchor where I liked it, and pinned it into place. I hand-sewed it in place.

Then I frayed the edges. I did this two different ways, first I just rubbed the fabric together until it frayed, and then I used my nail to fray the rest.

Then I just hung it up, and viola! A new shower curtain for only $1.50! Keep an eye out for posts coming soon about the rest of the bathrooms nautical transformation.
