Unique and Thrifty Window Decor
Today I’m sharing thrifty (and unique!) ways to dress your windows….or hang curtains.
UNIQUE AND THRIFTY WINDOW DECOR
I don’t know about you but I like saving money (I’m fairly certain you are with me on that! ;) )….and I love things that are a bit unique.
You’ll find a bit of both here today.
I hope this post inspires you to create something beautiful and unique in your own home too.
If you’ve done something similar, I’d love to hear about it. Be sure to drop me a message in the comments below.
Okay, so here are a few of mine that I’m guessing you might have seen before….
No Sew Curtains (so inexpensive this way!)
Another set I’ve done for my home.
This valance in the guest bath was made from a $2 remnant.
I only planned it for it to be temporary fix…but it’s still there 3+ years later. ;)
These are fabric (no sew) napkins I made for the purpose of laying over a rod.
A fun and different look for a small window.
You can purchase pretty fabric napkins this size just about anywhere and hang them this way.
I’ve even used decorative napkin ring holders as “hold backs”.
They are fun and there are many to choose from.
I removed the rod going across the window and added a $10 scarf from World Market.
Side note, my son painted and made the blue planter, and planted the pretty flower, for me in 3rd grade.
(the one in the window) That was over 8 years ago now.
It’s been broken and glued back together….twice! ;) But I will never throw it out.
It’s a treasure to me.
Can you see the starfish on the end brackets in the above photo?
I glued little starfish for a fun, coastal touch.
That’s an ultra up close shot but shows how they are glued to the bracket.
The scarf was “temporary” too but has also been there a few years.
I do have plans for a new window treatment though….once I find the perfect fabric.
Still looking….stay tuned. ;) (it will be no-sew)
Here are a few ideas from my friends…..
**If you’d like to pin any of these to Pinterest, please be sure to click the link and pin directly from each blog. :)
How fancy are these Duck Tape Trim Curtains by Jenna over at Rain on a Tin Roof ?!
What a fun touch they add.
Love this DIY Foam Board Cornice Megan made over at Rhapsody in Rooms.
I’ve wanted to tackle this one myself…but haven’t yet.
Stop by to see how Megan @ Rhapsody in Rooms made this Mini Blind Roman Shade.
Wendi @ H2o Bungalow made her vertical blinds go from plain to totally fabulous with a stencil.
What a great idea!
Another unique and fun way to hold curtains…how about a belt?
See it here… Julie @ Redhead Can Decorate.
I’m loving these DIY Outdoor Drapes Lesley @ Chaotically Creative made.
Can you believe they were made with drop cloths?!
I love the way Kristin made this pretty valance. So easy too!!
See it here… My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia.

How many of those steam a sews did you use for those drapes?
I think I used one but bought two to be safe. I’m getting ready to make another pair next week so will make sure to keep track. I will be posting the new curtains on May 5th on the blog. :)
