Making your children’s window treatments can be both fun and easy. Generally, we don’t spend as much money decorating our children’s rooms because their interests can change from year to year. There are many do it yourself ideas that save money and come out looking great. You don’t need any special skills or a sewing machine because there are many no sew options for window treatments. Let’s look at some easy and creative window treatment ideas for kids.
One great idea for kids rooms is to simply purchase extra bed sheets to coordinate with the bedding. It’s a good way to save money on fabric and get a coordinated look. To make your own rod pocket curtain panels, open the sides of the wider top hem of a flat sheet. This can be used as your a rod pocket. After you open the sides, simply turn the edges under and affix with fabric glue. Then you are ready to shirr the panels onto the rod. You can also create a gathered valance this way. If the pattern allows, turn the material lengthwise and create a pocket with fabric glue or iron-on fusible webbing. The bottom can be cut and no-sew hemmed to any length.
Deco Wrap no sew cornices make decorating your children’s room a snap. You don’t need to buy expensive fabric and it’s easy to coordinate the windows and bedding with little effort. All the material is just wrapped and tucked. The front slits of the foam cornice form can also give you an additional place for accent fabric. Extra material with sports motifs, for example, can be added and easily changed out at any time.
The great thing about going DIY is there is little commitment. It’s easy and inexpensive. When you want to change the room, perhaps from sports to super heroes, you can change the material. When you buy new bedding, get extra for the windows, add some fun accessories, and voila! You have created a new, fun themed room that will make any child happy.
