... to cover your windows without touching a needle.
With a little imagination and some simple connectors, you can turn any piece of fabric into an attractive window covering.
To make these supereasy curtains, choose a fabric that already has finished edges, such as a vintage linen, printed sheet, or pre-hemmed holiday fabric from the craft store. Then pair it with the hook, clip, or grommet that best matches it. For inspiration, take a look at some well-connected examples.
Clip rings onto a pre-finished edge of material and slip them over your curtain rod. This method makes it easy to swap styles to match season or mood, or to use the cloth again for something else. Varieties of clip-on curtain rings are available through companies like IKEA andSmith+Noble
Using iron-on fusing tape, create a channel at the top of your curtain wide enough for a rod or wood dowel to pass through.
Even if you want the finished look of buttons, you still don't need to sew them onto the curtains. Instead, thread fine wire through buttons to connect loops of grosgrain ribbon to fabric.
Grommets, slipped over wall hooks, produce a simple, crisp window treatment. Grommet kits are easy to use and widely available at fabric and craft stores.
Rayon cording tied through grommets gives a finished look. Cut equal lengths of cord and tie, and hide the knot behind the grommet.
Team beaded loops, made from 24-gauge wire, with wall hooks for an easy fix. Poke a hole in the fabric with a straight pin and the wire will pass through.
Thread beads on "memory wire" (wire coils that retain circular forms, available in bead shops) to make a simple curtain ring. Choose a hue that matches the fabric or pick up an accent color from elsewhere in the room.
