We have a large four bedroom home, but it only has two bathrooms. For our family, this works and we have no complaints, but since our guests use the same bathroom my kiddos do, I try to keep the design neutral and spa-like. Without getting too kitschy, I’ve kept the design nautical, using a couple octopus prints and calming ocean blues.

The shower curtain in this bathroom has evolved over the years because it’s right next to the toilet. I’ve got two boys. And a shower curtain nestled next to the toilet. I’ll leave you to figure out the dilemma that leaves me with. We’ve gone through three shower curtains in three tears thanks to missed targets. And every single time I purchase I new one, it’s an undertaking. The ones I want are well over $50 and it’s hard to find shower curtains in a spa-like palette.

Can you guess where this is going? You bet your rear end I DIY-ed my own. I couldn’t believe I had never tried to do this before. Fabric choices are endless, which means I’ll have a shower curtain I love, guaranteed. This project is no-sew for those of you who are afraid of your sewing machine (if you even own one!) and produces a DIY no-sew shower curtain you’ll impress your guests and yourself with!


  • two yards of fabric
  • white fabric shower curtain
  • iron
  • heat activated tape
  • scissors

To start, you’ll measure out your fabric on the shower curtain. I wanted a large patterned stripe & made my cuts about two inches longer than the curtain itself so I could fold it under.

Line the edges of your folds with the heat tape.

Fold the patterned fabric back over and use your iron to activate the glue and seal all the edges.

Finally, once the glue has cooled completely, you can hang the shower curtain. Don’t forget to use a liner to help avoid mold and mildew. If you want to be extra safe, they make waterproof treatments for fabric.

When designing and stocking your bathroom, consider creating an environment that mimics a spa. It’s relaxing and calming. Don’t forget the toilet paper! Your booty deserves a little pampering too! We are toilet paper snobs in my house. It’s the one household item I’m particular about and I’ll never compromise on and it’s resulted in my husband and kids being the same way. Quilted Northern Ultra Soft & Strong® with Cleanstretch® toilet paper, available at Walmart, is created with paper that limits tissue ripping and separation. It’s designed to be strong, and silky soft for a durable comfort that leaves you clean and refreshed. My spa bathroom uses only Quilted Northern, a 100 year old company that knows their bums.
