I wanted to soften up the top edge of the picture window in the living room, but didn't want to spend a lot of cash or give up a lot of room.  So I decided I didn't need a curtain rod.  The result, my first valence:


How did I do it?



I sewed clothespins to the back and then clipped them onto the top of the blinds!  The spacing is still a little wonky, but I'm pleased.  What do you think?  Any other clever ideas for curtains without rods?

Clothespins are indispensable in my life. A million and one uses around the house!

What I did, because I wanted curtains and can't put holes in the wall, is you take a dowel or whatever, can paint it however and add decorations to the end of it, and either drill through it and thread a ribbon through it, or add closed hooks to the end. Add your curtains to that and hang it on command hooks! the best inventions ever! we use them for everything! Smiley

Awesome! I'm moving into a new place soon and would love to hang some light curtains over my blinds in my new place and was trying to figure a way to do with without putting holes in the wall. Brilliant, thanks for sharing!
