Clip into Style

Clip-on rings make no-sew curtains fast and easy. Simply take material that you like, finish the ends and clip to hang. Ribbon glued to the edges can tie in a color scheme and add a punch to plain material. Drop cloths are a great resource for drapes – leave them plain, embellish them with ribbon, or even paint a design on them with fabric paint!

Cozy Curtains

Curtains complete a room and make it feel inviting. Pick a color fabric that compliments your bedding. If you used fabric on your closet, coordinate your curtains with them. This will give a unified feel and carry the color around the room.

Below you will see several different examples of window treatments. Curtain rods may be made from PVC pipe for only a few dollars (as seen in pictures 2-6). If your window is very large, PVC pipe makes it affordable to customize your curtains.

When working with cinderblock (as seen in pictures 2-3), run a 2×4 inch board up the wall to the desired height. Mount a rod bracket to the board and hang your curtain rod from that.
