Hello everyone!
Since this is my first post, I put a link to the pic at the bottom. Embarrassed

I've had this fabric for years!!! Moving into my own place, renting, and not having lots of money to decorate prompted some creativity. Cheesy I made this for my African and Asian inspired room.
I made the valance out of cardboard boxes (Thanks USPS!!), masking tape, and wood glue. Then I covered it with my fabric, using hot glue this time. I used my trusty staple gun to secure the curtains to the top of my window, lol. (You don't think I was about to buy curtain rods!!), I just kinda eyeballed the pleats and it came out great. Smiley
Since I made the valance to sit right on the top of the frame, I was able to nail it on with short nails. A couple of quick tie-backs and it looks perfect. Grin
Please tell me what ya'll think!!!

They look great, never would've guessed there's no rod. I've been wanting to do a vallance in our den and cardboard is a great idea.

Talk about creativity! They look wonderful, and kind of like something you would pay too much for at urban outfitters.
