Repair Vertical Blind Vanes

I have two large windows in my front room and kitchen. I used vertical blinds, not horizontal blinds on these two windows…along with sheer curtains, drapes, and a valance. When one of the vanes breaks I repair it using a three-hole punch because I do not own a single-hole punch.

Broken vertical blind slat.

Turn broken vane upside down.

Punch a hole in the center of the bottom edge.

Repaired vertical blind vane.

Re-install upside down. Put a piece of packing tape on the back of it at the top for reinforcement. The broken part is so close to the floor that it is not noticeable.
