Are you craving a fresh look for your windows but dreading the idea of sewing? Fear not! I have the most affordable diy hack no sew solution. Emily’s room has been looking so amazing but she desperately needed curtains. Best of all, we got a custom one of a kind look.
I have grown a bit tired of using white or cream curtains because her room is already so neutral. The bedding is pops of floral prints and blues, greens, reds. I wanted to contrast that with the new curtains. However she didn’t want to use the same color scheme. So I searched up the twin sheets that were complementary to her bedding and found a smaller blue floral print that adds a sense of whimsy and interest.
Best part is that it’s a fantastic DIY hack that will have your space looking stylish and unique without a single stitch. How, you ask? By using twin or twin XL bed sheets to create custom curtains. This DIY project is not only budget-friendly but also super easy, making it a perfect option for beginners and seasoned DIY enthusiasts alike. Let’s dive into the steps and get those creative curtains up in no time!
Materials You’ll Need:
– Twin or Twin XL Bed Sheets (two for each window)
– Tension Rod or Curtain Rod
– Measuring Tape
– Fabric Scissors
– Thread cutter
– Iron and Ironing Board
Step 1: Measure Your Windows
Start by measuring your windows to determine the length of the curtains you’ll need. If you prefer curtains that pool on the floor, add a few extra inches with twin size XL to your measurement for a dramatic effect.
Step 2: Choose Your Twin/XL Bed Sheets
Select twin or twin XL bed sheets that match your decor or add a pop of color to your room. The flat sheets are your best choice for this project, as they provide a seamless and continuous fabric that looks custom to your bedding!
Step 3: Thread cutter to the rescue
You’ll need two sheets per window, one for each side. Using the thread cutter, cut open the top larger hem on the sheet on the side. There should be an opening.
Step 4:Installing sheets
Next, just slide your curtains on the curtain rod. Adjust the positioning to your liking. That is it my friend!
Step 5: Add Personal Touches (Optional)
To give your curtains an extra flair, consider adding decorative ribbon to the top or bottom of your curtains. Fabric glue or fabric fusion tape works wonders for this, too.
And there you have it! With these easy steps, you’ve transformed twin or twin XL bed sheets into stunning custom curtains for your space. This no-sew DIY hack is not only cost-effective but also allows you to get as creative as you like with your decor. So, whether you’re looking to add a pop of color or a touch of elegance, this project is the perfect way to spruce up your windows without the need for a sewing machine. Get ready to enjoy your stylish and budget-friendly new curtains! I know Emily and I are obsessed with it!
