Create Stylish Do-It-Yourself Roman Valances

Out of all the window treatment valances, one of my favorite styles is the Roman. It has the look of a professionally sewn, folded Roman shade, but it is stationary. The Roman style is my go-to choice because it is simple, yet elegant. When considering do-it-yourself window treatment ideas, Deco Wrap cornices give you no-sew ease with a high end look. You have many options as to how you can create it, and it is easy to do because all the fabric is just tucked in. You can keep it simple  and use one fabric for the entire valance, or contrast the lower Roman folded portion. Deco Wrap also allows you to add trim such as cording and tassles or fringe. So if you want to dress it up, you have many options.


Deco Wrap no-sew cornice forms allow you to easily contrast the top portion, which makes using coordinating fabrics fun…
