Girls Embroidered Bed Canopy from Curtains

Girls Bed Canopy

Kylie from Stylish Settings started making curtains for her daughter’s bedroom years ago after viewing them in a Pottery Barn Kids catalog. Then the project got put on hold and soon forgotten. After finding the pieces in a box, Kylie got to work embroidering little birdies, flowers, and butterflies and attaching them to white sheer curtains. Instead of using her panels for a window, Kylie formed a canopy around the head of her daughter’s bed using a bed crown. My daughter would absolutely love this!

Burlap Easter Flag

Yes, the temperature today is in the thirties, but all the bunnies and eggs around make me feel like spring is on the horizon! Susan from Sunflower Hugs used materials she had on hand to create this burlap Easter flag with a bunny silhouette applique. Pottery Barn’s flag is already sold out, so Susan points out that you will have to DIY if you want to get your hands on one. Thankfully, Susan makes it easy on you with her tutorial!

Burlap Window Panels

I know I am not alone in saying that I love burlap and it’s price. The fact that I can get it for a couple of dollars a yard with a coupon makes me wonder why stores like Ballard are charging around $200 for one burlap panel. Sheesh! Alicia from Thrifty and Chic shows that you don’t have to pay those outrageous prices, not when you can make your own burlap curtains for $12, and that’s for two panels!

Stenciled Curtains

I am simply loving my new painted curtains and am not the only one who has had success with this money-saving option. Eleni from Fields of Basil wanted cheerful curtains with a splash of color and found them, but of course they came at a steep price. Instead, Eleni stenciled her own. I love the pattern she created!

Roman Shade from Drape

When revamping her laundry room, Debbie from Me and My DIY found a roman shade from Pottery Barn that had all the colors she wanted to incorporate into the space. Unfortunately, Pottery Barn’s prices and sizing did not cooperate with Debbie’s plans. Being the clever gal she is, Debbie instead ordered a drape from Pottery Barn and sewed her own shade for way less cash. She even had enough fabric remaining for a coordinating ironing board cover.

Shower Curtain Drapes

Jenny from Days of Chalk and Chocolate found an interesting way around paying high prices for fancy drapes by turning shower curtains into window curtains! Like Jenny, I have noticed the lovely assortment of pretty shower curtains while perusing the aisles of Target. Jenny lengthened the shower curtains by sewing material from a Wal-mart panel to the bottom. They really look high-end! Have you ever thought about using shower curtains for your windows?

Pleated Sheet Curtains

If you’ve seen the prices on some of Anthro’s ruffly panels, you know I am not exaggerating when I say they are crrrazy expensive. How about we just drop one of those zeros off the $200 price tag? Following this tutorial from Amanda at DIY Til We Die, you can make not one but TWO panels for under $20! What’s the secret you might be wondering… Amanda used $4 sheets from Wal-mart, which allowed her to get plenty of fabric to sew these beauties without the expense!
