No Sew Window Valances

I like to change the look of rooms without much fuss or money.  While looking for some inspiration for the windows in my craft room, I came across some wonderful ideas.

Handkerchief Valance

  • Handkerchiefs-I ultimately decided to go with handkerchiefs for my craft room windows.  I strung a sheer ribbon {one that would not show through the hankies} from one end to the other with a “stop” in the center of the windows, attaching to cup hooks. I have the cup hooks in place but after thinking this over, I am going to look for some inexpensive crystal drawer pulls to replace the cup hooks and small wreaths.

  • More HandkerchiefsThis was just too adorable not to have in this post.  In this case, the handkerchiefs are tied together using small knots.

  • Tea Towels-Any tea towels that tickle your fancy would be great displayed as a window treatment in a kitchen.  Linen, vintage or flour sack types come to my mind first.  This picture is from Apartment Therapy-which by the way is a great site.  I found it for the first time today while looking for pictures—lots of ideas!
  • Bandannas-How cute {in a boyish way of course} would bandannas be strung across a rope with little “lassos” at each end across the window of a boys room?  I may do that for youngest sons room.  It needs a pick me up and with bandannas being so inexpensive, this is definitely a can do.
