Nest box curtains are a great addition to any chicken coop. Not only do they provide the chickens with the privacy of a dark, safe place to lay their eggs, but they're a fun way to add cute decor to the coop. My mom is kind enough to make the chickens an adorable set of curtains for every season and she's sharing the step by step how-to for these halloween curtains today on the blog.
The first step is measuring your nest boxes and figuring out how much fabric you will need. Once you measure the distance between each of your boxes, you'll have a rough idea of how much fabric you will need. I have two nest boxes and we used 1 yard of fabric.
Now you're ready to pick out your fabric. This can be fabric from a craft store, an old tablecloth, a feed sack, whatever! For the month of October we picked out this cute skeleton fabric.
There you have it! DIY nest box curtains in 30 minutes or less. The tension rod makes the curtains super easy to hang and change out for the seasons.
