Do you ever look through magazines, shop on-line or stroll through a store and love all the drapes? But, when you find the ones you like either they are WAY to expensive or they don’t have enough?
I have a perfect DIY and NO SEW solution for you!! That’s right I said NO SEW….
It all started when I wanted something different for my windows in my office and family room. I have extra high ceilings and wanted the drapes to go from ceiling to floor. I searched on line and in the store and could not find what I was looking for at all.
So next option was a DIY project (I am always happy to tackle a DIY project)

I had paint around so just used what I had any type will work
Step by step directions:
Lay the drop cloth out on a large enough surface that it is all flat
Place the stencil on top starting in left upper corner
Get your paint and brush ready (remember less is better and the use a “pouncing” up and down motion)
Keep Moving stencil down completing a row and moving down or in a pattern until you have finished
Let paint dry
Pick side you want to place the trim (check out the video below that explains and shows these steps in detail)
Apply Fabric Tac to edge of fabric working in small areas and place the trim over the glue working your way down the edge
Let Fabric Tac according to directions
Put Curtain Rings on the top of material and hand up on curtain rod.
There are so many ways to custom make your own drapes this way. You don’t even have to stencil or add trim plain drop clothes are amazing as drapes also. Have fun with this project!
It truly is that easy and I spent around $50 total for 4 windows!
