Make your own no-sew drop cloth curtains with this really easy trick. Save money on curtains and get that rustic farmhouse look too!
Do you have a room that needs curtains but very little budget? Are you okay with an iron but not so good with a sewing machine? Then you’re going to love making your own no-sew drop cloth curtains!
Make Your Own No-Sew Drop Cloth Curtains
So, without sewing, I often use my glue gun and glue. But for this tutorial, I’m using an iron and hem fuse tape instead.
- One 4 foot by 15 foot canvas drop cloth
- Hem fuse tape
- Ironing board
- Curtain rod
- Curtain rings with clips
Step 1. Cut drop cloth in half, creating two pieces approximately 4’x7.5′.
Step 2. Iron out the fold lines, spritzing with water if necessary. Iron the raw edge down about 1/2″.
Step 3. Place hem tape in folded canvas and iron on one side and then the other to fuse together.
Step 4. Hang rod with appropriate hardware.
Step 5. Slip curtain rings onto rod and clip canvas onto ring clips.
You could even double up the curtains for a fuller look, or let the drop cloth puddle on the floor, like we did after we switched the living room and dining rooms.
Have you made any curtains for your house? What alternate uses have you found for drop cloths?
