Step 1:

Take any pair of white or off white curtains...(mine were shear but they can be solid as well) and tie them into knots.  I didn't have any rubber bands so I improvised by tying knots!

Just keep these babies outside until they are FULLY Dry.  Do Not Place them on anything you don't want paint on ;)
