Are your windows naked? What’s holding you back? Don’t have the funds to buy some? Don’t have the time to sew some? I have the instant cure for your naked windows. Get ready to make your own easy and inexpensive romantic curtains! Best of all, you don’t have to sew a thing!
- 2 Flat twin sheets from Walmart ($4.97 ea.)
- 10 Curtain ring clips
Fold your bed sheet in half lengthwise at the top edge. Pleat the left corner and clip a ring over the pleats approximately 2-3 inches below the top edge.
Pleat and add another clip at the fold. Gather another pleat halfway between your two clips and add a third clip.
Pleat and add a fourth and fifth clip halfway between clips 1,2 & 3.
Unfold the sheet and repeat the process on the un-clipped side. When you are done you should have ten clips evenly spaced across the top of the bed sheet.
Hang the curtain from your drapery rod and let the bottom pool on the ground.
Easy and inexpensive romantic curtains!
If you wanted to jazz them up you could add ribbon trim with fusible webbing. Or use a stencil to paint a design on your curtains. For now I’m enjoying the casual elegance.
