Nine Unusual DIY Window Treatments

While surfing the internet recently I came across some very clever and inexpensive window treatments.

The following Curtains were made by Donna of  Funky Junk Interiors for a grand total of $3 including hardware.
She embellished burlap coffee sacks with stenciled topography. 

Karianne from Thistlewood Farms Designed this window decor using a piece of drop cloth and trimming it with pink grograin ribbon as a valance.

These beautifully hanging drapes are "no sew".  Donna from Funky Junk Interiors again.  She took a canvas drop cloth, a coat hanger and some clothes pins and fashioned this clever window trim

No fabric?  Try paper.  Paula from Counting Your Blessings made this window treatment by stringing pages from vintage books onto ribbon and bunching them closely to create a unique and inexpensive valance.

For a humid place such as a bathroom here is a great suggestion.  Traci Hutcherson from Beneath My Heart made this clever curtain from a pillow case.  

A length of wallpaper is all it takes to turn a plain roller shade into a work of art -- complete with its own frame.

 A great use for outdated maps

How about a simple paint job?

Another way to let the light in.
