No Sew Window Treatment

In a previous blog I showed where my son assisted me by taking down borders over the holiday. 


 The dark borders along with dark curtains made the room dreary...So I decided it was time to change my window treatment.  I didn't want to spend a lot of money which meant I would have to whip up something myself.  Thankfully Home Fabric was having a terrific "Buy 2 yards get 1 yard free".  I found some lovely fabric for $5 a yard so a purchase of 6yds only cost me $20 then I bought 6 yds of ribbon for $5.  So, with my $25 purchase I was ready to get started. 




My first thought was to whip out my sewing machine but then I remembered how well the No Sew glue worked on my pillows, so I decided to give it a go...  Because it's so hot in the summer I knew I was going to keep the curtains short which allows for a better flow of air.  After taking measurements glued the sides and hem.





I then cut the ribbon in 7" strips and folded it over and glued at top.  Rather than using clips I will be using the ribbon to hang curtains.




That was it!  Once everything was dry it was time to hang them.

I decided to keep my  old sheers...



I had already had some tassels that I had taken off of another window treatment, so I decided to use them here.
















I have about 1 yard of fabric left, so I'll be whipping up some decorative No Sew Pillows soon!  Not bad for a $25 purchase...

Have Fun and don't forget to LET YOUR CREATIVITY FLOW!
