I’ve seen so many beautiful fall curtains lately that it really got me wanting to make some for our living area. I love my pinch pleated curtains but they are summery looking. But I found a great way on how to make inexpensive No sew Fall Curtains!
I wish we could hang our curtains outside the windows…
To make simple, inside mount, curtains for all seven windows I needed a minimum of 14 yards of material. Even though I found fabric on sale for $9 a yard…making the curtains would still run around $140. This is just too much money for a fall look from September to the end of November.
I kept hoping for some inspiration to hit me, a cozy cottage frugal kind of idea falling under $50. I didn’t want to do the “drop cloth” route since that’s what I use during winter. My inspiration came when I stumbled on two rolls of Lowe’s Landscape Burlap (Tip: this is what I use to line my outdoor planter containers) in the corner of my craft room.
My spring/summer curtains hang from curtain clips.
Even though these aren’t my curtains, they are similar and hung from clips.
The burlap landscape come on a roll’s measuring 3′ x 30′ for $9.99. I needed only 1 roll, so it’s way below my $50 budget! My inside windows measures 29″ each, so it’s not as full as I’d like but it will do for an inexpensive and easy no sew fall curtains.
I cut the burlap to the length I wanted..folded over about 2″ on the top and clipped to the curtains clips. Each curtain took me about 10 minutes.
You can’t get any easier than this…
They add a rustic feel to the window…and certainly nothing fancy. The curtains are easy to pull to one side letting in more light. But $10 for 7 windows I think they look great.
The curtains don’t add any “weather” protection but they’ll be changed out once the weather starts getting really cold.
What do ya think?
