Though not quite as grassroots-crafty as the matchstick blinds, another simple solution for temporary window covering is adhesive window film. This product has really caught on in the last few years, with product offerings from several different companies, in styles and patterns to match anyone's taste.


The opaque films come in several different patterns and designs to suit almost any space, with simple installation instructions involving little more than scissors or a razor blade. Be sure to buy a product made specifically for windows – regular shelf-type contact paper is an okay substitute right up to the point that you need to remove it, then it quickly turns nightmarish.

NotMartha and BeautifulHabitat have each pulled together a great roundup of tips, tricks, and products to help you find the perfect window film for your privacy project.

MacGyver!
