So are they all connected together with fishing line like blinds and then just kind of hanging down the window? I love the look of them!

thank you, everyone!! :)
yes, they're connected like blinds, except I also wrapped the fishing line around the board a couple of times (on both sides) and keep it in place with duct tape on the back. the duct tape seemed to work pretty good, but i am going to secure it better somehow. also used two strands of fishing line. when i put it up in october i will find a way to keep it from blowing around since they are so light. probably will use more fishing line and a stake.
might put some fake nails in the next ones.

Those look great for foam! Can you post some detailed up close picks of the fishing line and how you're attaching it to the foam and the house.
